May 27 @ 7:30 pm10:00 pm BST

This special show explores some of the stand-out jazz standards that have emerged from musicals along the decades.

This special show explores some of the stand-out jazz standards that have emerged from musicals along the decades, written by many of the greatest composers. Featuring numbers such as Summertime and I Loves You Porgy from Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess, Cole Porter’s So In Love from Kiss Me Kate, Rogers & Hart’s My Funny Valentine from Babes In Arms, and Somewhere from West Side Story as well as Lerner & Loewe’s The Street Where You Live and Harold Arlen’s Stormy Weather.

Artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson and Sarah Vaughan have all recorded definitive versions of songs originally meant for Broadway productions. Known collectively as ‘The Great American Songbook’, in some cases the individual songs are now better known than the musicals themselves.

Jazz vocalist Jo Harrop: “Warm, smoky and capable of the most delicate dynamics, her mellifluous voice reveals an intimacy few singers are capable of generating….” BBC 6 Music, is joined by top pianist Alex Hutton and noted bassist Jihad Darwish.
