Jacqui Dankworth

In this interview with Julian Joseph on Jazz Line-Up, Jacqui Dankworth speaks openly and passionately about how her late father, John Dankworth, inspired her in her development as a singer. Jacqui is also an actress and has and still does appear on the large and small screen. But it's Jazz where she feels at home still performing with her mother, Cleo Laine. Jacqui made this album "It Happens Quietly" in collaboration with her father and guides us though what was a difficult process of laying vocal tracks on the already recorded rhythm tracks from her dad, especially as you can hear him counting in the band at the start of the numbers, they leave the count in on the CD for one of the tracks in his memory.
Jacqui has the best of British jazz on this album including her musical director Malcolm Edmunston, Tim Garland on reeds, Steve Brown, drums, her brother Alec on bass and Ben Davis on cello on one track.
