'...Córka pary brytyjskich artystów: Johna Dankwortha i Cleo Lane - Jacqui Dankworth odziedziczyła po matce głos i kilkoma chwalonymi albumami ugruntowała wysoką pozycję wśród brytyjskich wokalistek. Co godne podkreśleni, jej płyta debiutancka został uznana 'płytą roku' w opiniotwórczym Timesie. (...)Jej przeznaczeniem są ballady, które potrafi interpretować w sugestywny sposób. Taki repertuar znajdziemy na nowej płycie artystki. Są tu śpiewane w oryginalnym, bezpośrednim stylu standardy jak 'My Ship', 'Blue Moon' czy świetny 'Man From Mars' Joni Mitchel,. a także kilka jej własnych kompozycji. Pogodny śpiew Jacqui Dankworth znalazł tu właściwą, subtelną oprawę instrumentalną ze znakomitą gitarą Mike'a Outrama i kontrabasem Aleca Dankwortha. Bardzo przyjemny album zmysłowej brunetki idealny na wieczorową porę. ...'
Wytwórnia Candid ma na swoim wiele sukcesów, być może jest to najprężniej rozwijająca się wytwórnia wydająca jazz wokalny. Przypomnę tylko, że to właśnie dla Candida nagrywa Stacey Kent, dla Candida swoją debiutancką płytę 'Pointless Nostalgic' nagrał Jamie Cullum, który dopiero co podpisał umowę za okrągły milion dolarów z wytwórnią Verve. I tym razem sukces jest gwarantowany, Jacqui Dankworth na swojej debiutanckiej płycie śpiewa z delikatnością Stacey Kent, z przebojowością Norah Jones, z seksapilem Diane Krall. Znajdziemy tu zarówno własne kompozycje wokalistki jak też znakomite interpretacje standardów: 'In A Sentimental Mood' czy 'You must believe in spring'.

Editor's Info:
Some spawn of creative loins spurn a life in the limelight, having perhaps said goodbye once too often as their parents went on tour, maybe seen the pressures of 'show business' destroy relationships or simply witnessed the blood sweat and tears it takes to succeed, and thought 'that's not for me'. Others go at it full pelt, never dreaming of doing anything else. One such child was Jacqui Dankworth.
Daughter of the legendary, and knighted, John Dankworth and Cleo Laine, young Jacqui was brought up either on the road or by a succession of Spanish nannies. To Jacqui the positives of the entertainment world attracted more than the negatives repelled. There was never any question that she wouldn't follow her parents into show business . The only surprise was into which area she choose to go.
Jacqui Dankworth's first forays onto the stage were as an actress, and a successful one at that. For many years Jacqui worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre and John Dexter's Company playing a multitude of critically acclaimed roles. Soon the plays turned into musicals and before long Jacqui was playing leading parts in the West End. But the singing bug had hit, and Jacqui left the lights of the London stage to focus on her own recording career.
The first thing Jacqui did was tour with brother Alec Dankworth's quintet, visiting Hawaii, Hong Kong and Indonesia. Jacqui then appeared as everything but the soldier in a staged performance of Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale at the Purcell Room, London and worked with award winning jazz composer/saxophonist Tim Garland on a song cycle - 'Songs Of Love And Liberty', alongside singers Norma Winstone and Christine Tobin. In early 1998 Jacqui was invited to be the guest vocalist on a major world tour with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
Occasionally time allowed her to venture into the studio to record - her first work being a newly commissioned jazz reworking of A. E. Housman poetry, as a guest artist with the New Perspectives Ensemble. The album was voted Record of the Year in the Times!
By 1999 her reputation was spreading and Jacqueline was asked to perform new arrangements of Gershwin's classics with the BBC Big Band at the Barbican and Symphony Hall, Birmingham. Next, a project was formed which she fronted until recently: Field of Blue. A simple acoustic band performing mostly original compositions with Harvey Brough. Together they toured extensively around the UK and Europe playing to packed houses. Field of Blue recorded two albums, an eponymous CD in 1999 and the second, Still was released in 2000 on Black Box records, both to wide acclaim.
Reviews were positive once again for the 2001 Black Box release with James Pearson, For All We Know, including, from the Sunday Times, 'one of our finest singers regardless of category'. Jacqueline happily appeared as a featured singer on Gerard Presencer's Linn album, The Optimist, and she recorded a track for the Nick Drake tribute album released on Hannibal Records as well as performing at the Barbican, London as part of the Nick Drake Tribute concert.
As a side project, Jacqui formed the three-part harmony group The Passion, with singers Liane Carroll and Sara Colman. The truly unique group released an album last year called One Good Reason, featuring the fabulous piano work of Liane Carrol and intricate, soulful three part harmonies of contemporary and original repertoire that features the individual and combined talent of three of the top vocalists in the country.
Another project close to Jacqui's heart is her children's show, 'The Star That Couldn't Shine' which recently premiered at the Stables in Wavendon and plans are afoot to turn the piece into an animated film.
As can be seen, the talents of Jacqui Dankworth are very much in demand. In 2002 she appeared with composer Tunde Jegede in a concert and educational project for Wingfield Arts and more recently Miss Dankworth sang the titles on the forthcoming film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (starring Martine McCutcheon), the theme tune for two series of Coming Alive on BBC Radio 4 and guested on Gloria Hunniford's Open House on Channel 5 and Esther on BBC2.
Jacqui was recently invited to conduct The Ellington Sacred Concerts at Dartington Summer school where she 'coaxed the choir into depths of Harlem soul the singers never knew they possessed' (The Sunday Times), followed by an Ella Fitzgerald Songbook tour early in 2003. A national tour with the famed Brodsky Quartet ensued where Jacqui guested alongside Paul McCartney, Sting, Elvis Costello and Ian Shaw. The accompanying album will be released in September.
Another album on which Jacqui is featured is the new Courtney Pine set, as yet without release date but said to be something very special.
To bring us bang up to date, we have the release of her debut album for Candid Records, As The Sun Shines Down On Me, featuring the guitar virtuoso Mike Outram and the vastly experienced Roy Dodds. The associated tour and publicity should see Jacqui take her place at the top of the pile.
