Jacqui Dankworth & Charlie Wood in their debut performance together of classic jazz songs, some of their own, plus a modern take on the legendary 1961 duo collaboration between Betty Carter and Ray Charles. Jacqui and Charlie also performed two numbers written by Jacqui's father, Sir Johnny Danworth. One of these was an instrumental number which Jacqui had written lyrics for, entitled "The Man" - a fitting tribute a jazz legend who was a saxophonist and composer.
