Music: Jacqui Dankworth - Jazz Sirens

Given her musical pedigree – daughter of Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth – it is no surprise that Jacqui Dankworth is firmly positioned as one of the UK's foremost jazz vocalists.

In this very special and intimate evening, Jacqui turns her attention to the most iconic vocalists of the 20th Century and the singers who defined 'The Great American Songbook' - including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Peggy Lee.

Through a diverse repertoire arranged and curated by Jacqui, the concert celebrates the music of the Jazz Sirens, whose legacy and influence shaped a classic era.

Jacqui will be accompanied by Charlie Wood, a singer and pianist who has seen success across both the US and UK, having grown up immersed in jazz, blues and old-school R&B soul.

Together, the two will present an evening of world-class music featuring classic numbers that made the Jazz Sirens international stars, alongside stylish reworkings of lesser-known gems.

Jacqui has collaborated with a diverse array of musicians and groups throughout her career, including Marvin Hamlisch, Paloma Faith, Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Chick Corea. She is also an accomplished actress, having performed leading parts with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and in London West End musicals, including Steven Sondheim's Into the Woods.

One of our finest singers, regardless of category

Had I not been sitting about three feet away from the action, I would have suspected some kind of electronic trickery because the arrangement was so complex, the timing so nifty and Ms Dankworth's vocal control so exquisite
