Perdido Records presents

Jacqui Dankworth and Butterfly’s Wing “Le Départ”

Friday 18th October, 7.30pm

To celebrate the London launch of their first CD, Le Départ, the unique chamber jazz group ‘Butterfly’s Wing’ entices you into their stunning soundworld and thoughtful virtuosity. David Gordon and Jacqui Dankworth’s collaboration provides the thrust of the original material, interspersed with some new arrangements of classic songs, masterfully arranged by David for these four distinguished performers. Stripped of the usual jazz rhythm section of bass and drums, this group produces a transparent sound, by turns magical, intense, witty, rhythmically powerful – the ideal setting for Jacqui’s unmistakeable approach to song.

“One of our finest singers, regardless of category” THE SUNDAY TIMES

“It was unique and authentic and a programme full of dynamic and diverse music from four wonderful artists.” EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES
