Alexandra Theatre, Bognor Regis
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, putting her own unique stamp on some unforgettable tunes.
Through a diverse repertoire specially arranged and curated by Jacqui, the concert celebrates the music of these jazz sirens, whose legacy and influence defined a classic era of jazz singing.
Expect to hear mesmerising renditions of the music made famous by stars such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee and many more.
Featuring numbers that made them international stars, alongside stylish re-workings of lesser-known gems, this is an evening of world-class music perfect for any fan of jazz.
Tickets cost £19.
