Jazz Journal Review of Pizza Express Gig 7th July 2013
- Published on Mon, 22 Jul 2013
Rachel Sutton mixed 50s American swing with contemporary composition to great effect at Pizza Express - catch her if you can, says Amanda Blinkhorn.
Rachel Sutton’s soaring vocals pack a power and perception which belie her years. She set the tone for vintage glamour by opening with Too Close For Comfort, taking us back to a time when America stood for all things classy, sharp and romantic. She breathed life into American classics like I’m A Woman and Good Morning Little Schoolgirl with a sense of naughtiness which made them hot again.
