Artist description: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)
