Last Show: Sunday 22 nd July 2018

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Arriving in London in 1999, Lane quickly established herself as a respected recording artist and dynamic live performer. Her debut album 'Once In A Lifetime' (2002) garnered the attention and positive reviews of the International jazz press and radio play in the UK, Japan, USA and Canada. Her 6th album 'Passarim' recently released at the Sunset Club in Paris to a sell out crowd, focuses on her love of Brazilian music visiting Brazilian standards sung in Portuguese and English. Karen has been delighted to find herself singing in places she’d never imagined she would visit: including Sicily, Portofino, Nice, Monte Carlo, Evian, Berlin, Cape Town and Bucharest. Lane’s band features some of London’s finest musicians: Rob Luft on guitar, Andy Hamill on bass, Andrea Trillo on drums and vocals, Graham Harvey on piano/Rhodes and Gareth Lockrane on flutes.

“So laid back that to listen to it, you risk slipping a disc - delightful. Perfect for those balmy summer evenings - a genuinely heartfelt homage to the profound allure of bossa nova.” - Jazzwise

“Sensually funky and soulful." John Fordham

“I know of no one else who sings with what I can only describe as her demure abandon. It's wholehearted but at the same time restrained, precisely phrased but not over studied,a fine and distinctive singer."
