It was unique and authentic and a programme full of dynamic and diverse music from four wonderful artists.
Jacqui and her three fellow musicians produced a concert full of subtle and sublime tracks from their brand new album Le Depart.
With Chris Garrick on piano and melodica, Christian Garrick on violin and Oliver Hayhurst on bass they rolled out an irresistible feast of modern jazz songs.
You could hear remnants of her mother Cleo’s voice in the silky Grammy-Award-winning singer’s repertoire which featured an array of tunes while the trio of musicians combined extraordinarily to feature their undoubted talents which were exemplified in the instrumental Celia.
Smooth and sophisticated they featured many tracks from the new album including Butterfly’s Wing, Angel Feet, The Bear, Just A Song, The Madman, The Knee and the amazing The Alchemist And The Catflap.
And they augmented those with their rendition of September Song and the amazing The Windmills of Your Minds.
