Jacqui Dankworth & Charlie Wood

Charlie Wood and Jacqui Dankworth present an intimate evening of the songs of Duke Ellington and other classic songs. Two sublime voices in harmony singing the songs of great composers. Charlie is the 136th person to receive a Brass Note on Beale street, Memphis Tennessee and is now garnering rave reviews for his new album “New Souvenirs” out on Perdido Records co – produced by Jacqui and Charlie.

Given her musical pedigree – daughter of Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth - it’s no surprise that Jacqui is firmly positioned as one of the UK’s foremost jazz vocalists. Her concert appearances and her stylistically diverse recordings showcase her virtuosic, seemingly effortless mastery of a wide spectrum of genres. Known primarily as a jazz singer, Jacqui’s unique musical palette also draws on folk, soul, classical, blues, and numerous other influences. Reviewers have described her as “incomparable”, “multi-faceted” and “…one of our finest singers, regardless of category.” - (Sunday Times)

“Jacqui Dankworth doesn’t confine herself to singing jazz; she is gracefully at ease in folk music and semi classical contexts, as well as being an imaginative interpreter of standards. But in all her incarnations, she exhibits a subtle control of dynamics and a voluptuous tonal richness that seems to make almost any material sound special.” – John Fordham (The Guardian)

Doors open at 7.15 pm.
