Today we spoke to British jazz singer Jacqui Dankworth, daughter of the jazz musician, arranger and composer Sir John Dankworth and the singer Dame Cleo Laine.
For the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Jacqui thought it would be most appropriate to visit the musical settings of Shakespeare’s poetry that inspired the seminal 1964 album “Shakespeare and All That Jazz” composed by her late father for her mother.
The performance tomorrow night at the Maltings Theatre will include “Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day”, “O Mistress Mine”, “Fear No More The Heat O’ The Sun”, the story of “Macbeth” and much more.
Tickets are still available at this time on the Maltings Theatre website and http://stalbansshakespeare.co.uk/
