Australian-born, New York based vocalist Jo Lawry’s debut album I Want to Be Happy was released in 2008 to rave reviews, and named among the “Best CDs of the Decade” by Downbeat Magazine.  She has become known beyond jazz circles, however, for her work with Sting - with whom she has been recording and touring since 2009 - and more recently with Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel.  She was also featured in the recent Oscar-winning documentary, 20 Feet from Stardom.

She will be accompanied by Matt Penman on bass and Will Vinson on saxophone and piano.
