Jo Harrop & British Standard Time

LONDON Boulevard Theatre
6 Walker's Ct, Soho


In the Boulevard Theatre’s weekly jazz spot, Soho Sounds: Jazz, velvet-voiced Jo Harrop and pianist/arranger Alex Webb present an evening of British songwriting at its best. From the jazz-era masters Ray Noble and Eric Maschwitz to music theatre writers like Antony Newley, Leslie Bricusse and Lionel Bart, from the pop giants Lennon & McCartney to Elvis Costello and Amy Winehouse, Harrop and Webb mine a rich seam of material and present it in a cool, contemporary jazz format. Expect classics like 'These Foolish Things', 'The Very Thought Of You', 'As Long As He Needs Me', 'Who Can I Turn To', 'Almost Blue' and 'Norwegian Wood' as well as forgotten gems by John Dankworth and Victor Feldman – along with some carefully-chosen originals and a couple of surprises.
