Sir John Dankworth

We will miss Sir John Dankworth. There are going to be numerous tributes to his work over the following weeks. Here are two that I really enjoyed reading: Frank Griffith’s in the London Jazz; John Fordham in the Guardian. I remember a fantastic evening at the RNCM last summer when Sir John played with the RNCM big band. He played beautifully, told wonderful stories and coached/complimented/encouraged the other young musicians on the stage in such a humble and sensitive way.
