JAQUI DANKWORTH & CHARLIE WOOD - “Just You, Just Me”

Jacqui Dankworth (daughter of jazz singer Cleo Laine and musician John Dankworth) is one of the most highly regarded vocalists in the UK. 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)

Tonight Jacqui is joined onstage by her husband, acclaimed American pianist-vocalist Charlie Wood, for a unique concert of duet arrangements celebrating a century of song.

Inspired by some of the great musical partnerships, such as Ray Charles & Betty Carter, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn, George & Ira Gershwin, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway and James Taylor & Carole King, this concert features numbers including Alone Together, Autumn In New York, It Don’t Mean A Thing, A Foggy Day, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, You’ve Got a Friend and other favourites.

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

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

I fell in love with this man’s voice the moment I heard it.  He is the essence of soul and blues.  I am so lucky to have sung on the same stage as him.” – Paloma Faith

Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen, or Costello, or Waits?  Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt.” – Jazz Times

Start time 8:00pm; full tickets £12, concessions (OAPs & under 18s) £10).
