Peggy Lee

Gwyneth Herbert joins Alyn Shipton to choose the best jazz discs by singer Peggy Lee.

Alyn Shipton is joined by Gwyneth Herbert, a fine Lee interpreter, to explore singer Peggy Lee's earlier work, with Benny Goodman, as a broadcasting artist and as a jazz singer.

In later life, reclusive and swathed in a jewelled scarf, Peggy Lee had come a long way from her origins as a jazz singer. In this programme, Gwyneth Herbert, herself a fine interpreter of Lee's songs, explores the singer's earlier work, with Benny Goodman, as a broadcasting artist and as a pure jazz singer. As well as Peggy Lee standards such as Why Don't You Do Right and Fever, there are many examples of her jazz excellence in lesser known songs.
