'The Allure of Miss Lee' - Catherine Lima and her Quartet
Posted on 29th May 2019 by Nick Clarke
Catherine Lima and her Quartet play a fundraising concert for the National Jazz Archive featuring the music of Peggy Lee on Saturday 27 July, in Loughton, Essex.
Catherine Lima explores Peggy Lee’s rise from humble beginnings to her first big break as a singer with Benny Goodman through to her solo career as a singer/song writer and actress. The concert will feature hits such as ‘Fever’, ‘I’m a Woman’, ‘He’s a Tramp’, ‘Is That All There Is?’ and some of Peggy’s lesser known songs from her 60-year career.
Catherine Lima has been singing on the London jazz circuit since 2001. She is a charismatic and entertaining performer with a warm expressive tone which she uses expertly to create moods from sultry to joyous. Whether performing an intimate set with a duo or trio, or fronting a big band, her personality comes through with each song. She performs regularly at venues in North and East London and Essex and is a vocalist with the John Ongom Big Band and MOJO. Her album, Stories and Lies, was released in September 2017.
Her Quartet features Paul Higgs on piano, Alex Field on guitar, Les Cirkel on drums and José Canha on bass.
