JACQUI DANKWORTH & CHARLIE WOOD

9 DEC, 8PM

 

The multi award-winning Jazz vocalist Jacqui Dankworth will perform alongside her husband, acclaimed American pianist-vocalist, Charlie Wood. 

The daughter of jazz singer Cleo Laine and musician John Dankworth, her concert appearances and stylistically diverse recordings showcase her virtuosic, seemingly effortless mastery of a wide spectrum of genres. Known primarily as a jazz singer, Jacqui also draws on folk, soul and blues influences. Her voice has been described as “multi-faceted” and “incomparable” by The Times.

The concert will feature classic compositions and landmark recordings by legendary duos like Ray Charles, Betty Carter, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn, George & Ira Gershwin, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, James Taylor & Carole King and many more.


"Probably the most flexible and expressive voice of her generation"  The Observer

"One of our finest singers, regardless of category." The Sunday Times
