Jo Harrop trio showcase the songs of the legendary Nina Simone
The much in demand jazz vocalist Jo Harrop will be showcasing the songs of the legendary Nina Simone along with the acclaimed pianist Alex Hutton and the noted bassist Jihad Darwish.
Nina Simone’s music spanned a broad range of styles ranging from Jazz, Folk, Blues and Classical through to R&B, Gospel and Pop and she went on to record over 40 albums between 1958 and 1974, making her debut with Little Girl Blue as well as having a hit single in the US with I Loves You Porgy.
The repertoire of the concert will reflect Nina’s early years from her 1959 debut covering such 60’s classics as I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl, Love Me Or Leave Me, Here Comes The Sun, Wild Is The Wind, House Of The Rising Sun and I Loves You Porgy among others.
Expect also to hear some fascinating background details of the iconic singer and pianist during this very special show. Jo Harrop is a hugely accomplished jazz singer making big waves on the UK jazz scene having appeared at the Royal Albert Hall among many of London’s other well-respected venues.
