After opera and Motown, Pigfoot this month tackle “the King”!
The Guardian’s John Fordham described last month’s Pigfoot Play Motown gig at the Vortex as “ideal reassurance for the jazz-suspicious”. So it is fitting that “Suspicion” will feature amongst the genre bending quartet’s account of Elvis Presley’s rock and roll and Vegas hits, as Pigfoot continue their fearless and idiosyncratic exploration of classic repertoire.‘There is all the musical intelligence you would expect from these four superb jazz musicians, along with a whole lot of heart and joy. There is also an admirably subversive glint in every eye. Damn, do these guys have a good time!’
