Jacqui Dankworth with Brodsky Quartet

Jazz at Kings Place

Jazz singer Jacqui Dankworth and the Brodsky Quartet first met nearly twenty years ago when they collaborated on a hugely successful song-writing project for Secondary School children nationwide, on behalf of the Contemporary Music Network. Since then they have relished opportunities to come together in a break from their usual performing schedules, growing their repertoire to make up this richly diverse set of songs from folk to rock, new works and of course the jazz classics for which Jacqui is so well known. Songs from Brodsky friends Elvis Costello, Sting, Diana Krall and Bjork sit beside new creations by Harvey Brough, Charlie Wood, John and Alec Dankworth as well as Jacqui herself, folk song settings by Britten and big tunes from Nelson Riddle, in colourful arrangements by the performers and their friends. A smorgasbord of moods and flavours. 
