‘Something new and exciting’ says Jazz in Europe of vocalist Lulu Pierre, a startling arrival on the London jazz scene back at The Hampstead Jazz Club with MD/Pianist/Composer Alex Webb!
‘A voice that send chills down your spine. You know from the moment she walks on stage that she’s something special’ – Naomie Harris OBE (Academy Award, BAFTA & Golden Globe nominee).
A striking and chic figure on stage, Lulu has a rich mezzo-soprano capable of conveying deep emotion one moment and swinging hard the next. Her accompanist and MD Webb has a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists; together they have created a vocal act which feels both fresh and classically jazz.
Lulu Pierre performs a thoughtful range of material including unusual song choices and little-known gems from the jazz repertoire. honing a tight, grooving jazz vocal act accessible to general listeners and jazz purists alike.
Lulu says, ‘I feel I’m informed by the great jazz singers who went before, but not a prisoner of their approach. So we can include some pop songs, some obscure choices, some originals and the way it comes out, I really feel like I’m expressing something of my own.’
Alex Webb is a pianist, arranger and songwriter with a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists; his songs have been recorded by Liane Carroll, China Moses, Jo Harrop, Allan Harris, Cherise, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and many others.
‘Something new and exciting … Alex Webb’s fantastic arrangements allowed Lulu the space to make a clear statement – she has arrived’ – Jazz in Europe
