Jo Harrop

Inspired by the coolness of jazz divas such as Julie London and Anita O’Day, and the emotion of late-night ballads by Sarah Vaughn and Billie Holiday, Jo Harrop and her band perform well-loved standards from the American songbook – capturing the swinging spirit of 1940s and 50s recordings.
