“It led me to invite Jo Fooks into my band…I can report that in the year and-
a-half that has elapsed since then, she has developed further into a bright
star. I make no apology for singing her praises here. A brilliantly inventive player
and composer…”
Humphrey Lyttelton on BBC Radio 2 Best of Jazz

“Wow, was I in for a surprise. First Jo’s sound on tenor. Full and mellifluous with a sound that had distinct touches of the late great Zoot Sims. Both her lower and upper
registers were full and round and projected beautifully even without a microphone…
the enthusiastic crowd demanded two encores… All in all an excellent evening of
excellent jazz, with the musicians seemingly enjoying it as much as the audience.”
Don Emanuel


Supported by Peter and Margaret Colby and Angela and Les Daws
