Jacqui Dankworth / Georgia Cecile
A gala show celebrating the best jazz singing around today - with two sensational singers. Jacqui Dankworth has an effortless mastery of a wide spectrum of jazz genres and a deep emotional empathy with the classic American songbook, but what sets her apart is the sheer warmth, sexiness, and the soulful quality of her voice which has been described as “incomparable” by The Times. Opening the concert, Georgia Cecile has arrived as the major singer of the new Scottish jazz scene. She is a super-classy singer who hits the spot when it comes to Broadway songs, beautiful ballads, swinging jazz, and a host of originals and modern pop tunes she and her pianist, Euan Stevenson have re-invented. Both singers will sing with their own bands.
