"Sir John Dankworth, who died today aged 82, was one of the totemic
figures of British jazz, the first major jazz musician and the first British bebopper to be knighted, a leading musician, who with his wife Dame Cleo Laine, became known to the broader public beyond the jazz world and to an international audience"

Excellent musician, not quite the Ewan McColl of British jazz, but certainly one of the best known.

I'm sad he's gone. I'm sure music will live on through the Dankworth family. My condolences to his family and friends.
RIP Mr. Dankworth.

Last saw him play a couple of years ago at the Stables when he was "persuaded" to jam with the band backing Lilian Boutte at one of the Sunday lunch outdoor picnic concerts. Still playing well then.

Another great loss.....some people seem to have always been here, part of the music fabric..Johnny and Cleo were in that class.

Sad news indeed.

"Excellent musician, not quite the Ewan McColl of British jazz, but certainly one of the best known."

The Ewen MacColl of British Jazz is Dankworths Piano player Eddie Harvey.

I know for a fact that he and Cleo Laine gave a lot of support and encouragement to many young folk singers and musicians. He was clearly one of the good guys and I am sure he will be missed by many.

Well, he was in his 80s, still playing, so I think he had a lovely life, doing what he loved..

I used to love watching he and Cleo, I thought she was so pretty, with the *most* amazing voice! As Tug says, Johnnie seems to have always been there, along with Cleo.

An achieving family. Sir John, Dame Cleo. Their sons are jazzmen, too.
Cleo got the news when she was onstage, and announced it.

No,she knew before the show,actually,but didn't reveal the news about John's death until the show was over ; apparently,she didn't know if she'd be able to perform like that without breaking down,but in the end she coped,somehow;a quite remarkable achievement by any standards,but then,as she said,that's how her husband would have wanted it.
