Jacqui Dankworth & Charlie Wood

“Just You, Just Me”:A Concert of Duets, Celebrating a Century of Song Multi award winning vocalist, Jacqui Dankworth, is joined by acclaimed American pianist-vocalist, Charlie Wood for a unique concert of duets celebrating a century of song. 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 and Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway – the concert will feature 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 and You’ve Got a Friend. ‘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’ The Observer ‘Jacqui Dankworth, one of the classiest acts in British jazz singing’ The Guardian ‘Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen. or Costello, or Waits? Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt’ The Jazz Times ‘It’s a mystery why Wood isn’t lined-up with Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter and the like’ Jazz Journal
