“Probably the most flexible and expressive voice of her generation” The Observer
“Just You, Just Me.” The award-winning vocalist Jacqui Dankworth is joined onstage by her husband, acclaimed American pianist-vocalist, Charlie Wood, plus a stellar group of jazz musicians, for a unique concert of duet arrangements celebrating a century of song. The line-up for this programme can be as large as a symphony orchestra and big-band or as small as a duo, with everything in between.
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.
“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
