Emily Dankworth

With the Jazznights Trio

“Emily’s voice is forged from the DNA of Jazz royalty… No surprise that it is gorgeous, smooth, lush… shall I go on?” Ralph Salmins.

Emily collaborates with some of England’s top musicians. With a rich musical upbringing and heritage – granddaughter to Dame Cleo Laine and the late Sir John Dankworth, niece to Jacqui Dankworth and daughter to Alec Dankworth – her unique singing style lends itself perfectly to jazz, Latin and lyrical melodies.
