Sarah Moule Quartet (jazz)

Acclaimed jazz vocalist Sarah Moule will be visiting the Underground Theatre on the 18th of January. From her website, it appears that she will be performing her show A Portrait Of Miss Peggy Lee and I very much hope that this will be the case. An iconic American singer of the twentieth century, Peggy Lee enthralled audiences with her 'electric blue voice'. Sarah revisits signature songs such as Black Coffee, Fever, Why Don’t You Do Right? I’m A Woman and Is That All There Is? and explores Lee’s own influences from the Blues to Ray Charles and Maxine Sullivan.

Born on the South Coast of England, Sarah travelled extensively after leaving university. Returning to London in the 1990s, she met jazz singers Ian Shaw and Claire Martin who introduced her to composer Simon Wallace. Something about the music Wallace was writing, with Fran Landesman, appealed to Sarah and she has since gone on to record two CDs of their work: It's A Nice Thought and Something's Gotta Give.
Sarah has forged herself a strong reputation on the London jazz scene, singing regularly at the 606 Club and The Vortex and guesting at Ronnie Scott's. She has also toured A Tribute To Ronnie Scott around the Mediterranean with Underground favourite John Critchinson.
