About: Jacqui Dankworth: Shakespeare and all that Jazz

In the year of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, jazz star Jacqui Dankworth revisits the musical settings of Shakespeare’s poetry inspired by and taken from the groundbreaking 1964 album Shakespeare And All That Jazz composed by her late father, Sir John Dankworth, for her mother, Dame Cleo Laine.

The concert will include works such as Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day (Sonnet 18), O Mistress Mine (Twelfth Night), a bluesy take on the story of Macbeth and even a comical setting of Shakespeare’s complete works!

The brilliance of the music, the genius of Shakespeare's poetry and world class musicians, combined with Jacqui's emotional and virtuosic voice, will make for a very special concert. This material has not been performed in completion by another songstress since Dame Cleo Laine recorded the album Wordsongs in the 1980's. The time is right for Jacqui to revisit the material she grew up with and to sing these poems that are embedded in her DNA!
