Lizzie Cooper & her Trio: Jazz Night

Tell a friend:

18th March 2014 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

The second in a series of relaxed jazz evenings performed in the relaxed and intimate surroundings of the venue's Sock Gallery.  Lizzie will host the evening and perform with her trio of piano, bass and drums. The concert will also feature special guest saxophonist Alan Barnes. 

Lizzie sings standards from the ‘Great American Songbook’ from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, including songs written by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, and Carlos Jobim as well as many others.  Lizzie comments, “The sound and tone of my voice, I have been told, is quite distinct.  It has a low register and is quite mellow.”
