Hear the fabulous Cleo Laine with the John Dankworth Group in concert at Pepperdine University in Malibu.
Friday, September 18!
Cleo Laine is a singer who has done just about everything. She's played everywhere - English dance halls to London's Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie to the Blue Note Cafe. She's been on stage, on Broadway, to London's West End, done opera and the BBC.
The London-born Laine can sing opera or jazz with her set of multi-octave pipes. A star of the theatre, she has also recorded with such hepsters as Ray Charles and Mel Torme.
One of the best singers in the world
In a career that spans more than fifty years as a performer, composer and conductor, John Dankworth combines confidence and virtuosity with eclecticism and unpredictability.
It is unlikely that there is a British musician better known for a wider range of musical activities. For many years now his name has been synonymous with the crossing of musical barriers. Indeed he started achieving quite surprising musical breakthroughs of this sort at a time when such events were rare occurrences.
