Sarah Moule: Stormy Emotions. Album launch, June 30 at Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho

(Press release) 

‘A near perfect vocal-jazz album’ ★★★★✰ John Eyles, AllAboutJazz 

‘I reviewed this back in February and it has been on my car stereo ever since and it has been a long  time since any CD has lasted that long – that’s how good it is! Words, music and voice are just so  compelling…This is an equilateral triangle that is perfectly balanced – words, music, voice.’ Lance  Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here  

‘Moule captures every nuance of the late great lyricist’s words…touchingly…candidly and  always unerringly…beautifully set by Simon Wallace’ ★★★★ Dave Gelly, The Observer  

‘A terrific central performance by Moule, who sings throughout with complete conviction and  technical command, not to mention freshness and insight’ ★★★★ Peter Quinn, Jazzwise  

‘A quietly authoritative jazz singer with no time for fake sentiment. Moule is the perfect  storyteller’ Clive Davis, The Sunday Times 

Wednesday 30th June, 8pm (doors 6.30pm), £15 

Pizza Express Jazz Club 

10 Dean Street 

Soho, London W1D 3RW
