(2 votes)

O'Day, along with Mel Tormé  is often grouped with the West Coast school of jazz. Like Tormé, O'Day had some training in jazz drums (courtesy of her first husband Don Carter); her longest musical collaboration was with jazz drummer John Poole. While maintaining a central core of hard swing O'Day's skills in improvisation of rhythm and melody ranks among the pioneers of bebop.

On Sunday 15th April, Jo Harrop will be paying tribute to O’Day’s Verve years. With Jo’s music described as retro soul and a voice that’s been variously likened to dark velvet and honeyed chocolate all matched to a sunny, upbeat personality, she will make it an evening not to be missed.

Jo will be supported by Steve Rubie – sax & flute; Terence Collie – piano; Miles Danso – bass; Sophie Alloway – drums.

Venue: Riverside Arts Centre, 59 Thames Street, Sunbury, TW16 6RB

Doors 7.30pm

Entrance £12 on the door or £9 via website: www.moodindigoevents.co.uk
