Remembering the queen of jazz

JAZZ singer Jo Harrop celebrates the legendary star Peggy Lee in Fever, at Dorchester Corn Exchange on Saturday 13th April at 8pm.

Peggy Lee was one of the great figures of jazz and American popular song, with a career spanning six decades. Sinatra described her as regal; Duke Ellington called her “the queen”.

She wrote and sang for Disney’s Lady And The Tramp and had a string of hits stretching from her early days with Benny Goodman until the 1990s.

Jo Harrop pays tribute to the sultriest songstress of all, delivering moving renditions of classics such as Fever, Why Don’t You Do Right and The Folks Who Live On The Hill.

She is accompanied by Alex Webb on piano, Henry Gilbert on bass, Joel Prime on drums and special guest Tony Kofi on alto sax.
