Lizzie Cooper & her Trio: Jazz Night

Tell a friend:

27th May 2014 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

The fourth in our 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 Paul Sawtell on vibes. 

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.” 

Paul Sawtell, vibes
Paul is a wonderful vibes player as well as a brilliant pianist.  Paul is predominantly known as a jazz pianist, and is routinely booked to play with top soloists from London and abroad. These include such big names as Shirley Bassey, Neil Sedaka, Sir Cliff Richard, BBC Radio Big Band and many more.  Throughout the 70s and 80s, Paul was regularly aired on national radio stations BBC 1, 2 and 3. He has also made many TV appearances, Pebble Mill at One, The Bruce Forsyth Show, Central Weekend and the Des O’Connor Show.

The Jazz Night offers a relaxed experience with an open bar and unreserved seating.  The concert begins at 8pm, ending at 10.30pm.

Lizzie's new CD entitled 'You Don't Know What Love Is' will be available for sale on the evening.
