Jazz in Loughton

If you already are lucky enough to live in Loughton you will know that the National Jazz Archives are based. Love it or hate it Jazz is part of our history and on Saturday 27th July 2019 in Loughton Methodist Church from 1:30 pm for a start time of 2:30 pm 'The Allure Of Miss Lee' - Catherine Lima and Her Quartet might surprise and or delight you.

Catherine Lima has been singing on the London jazz circuit since 2001. She’s a charismatic 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 Quartet features Paul Higgs on piano, Alex Field on guitar, Les Cirkel on drums and José Canha on bass.

Catherine Lima will be exploring 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/songwriter 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 and her Quartet are playing this fundraising concert featuring the music of Peggy Lee for the National Jazz Archive, in Loughton, Essex.
