Veritable national treasures, Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth made noteworthy recordings in each of the last seven decades. This collection brings together tracks from throughout their remarkable careers, combining their finest solo sides along with collaborations with each other, their family and a stellar cast of friends (Ray Charles, John Williams, Dudley Moore and Julian Llyod Webber, to name but a few).

Reviews

"...a valuable retrospective..." [4 stars, Stuart Nicholson - Jazzwise]

...Defying the ravages of time are the king and queen of British jazz, John Dankworth and Cleo Laine, who are celebrating their respective 80th birthdays. To mark both auspicious occasions is a newly released 4CD box set. It contains rare early material by the couple (going back to the 40s and 50s)as well as later, more recent, collaborations with their children Jacqui and Alec Dankworth. Jazz critic Alyn Shipton provides perceptive liner notes. [4 stars, Charles Waring - Record Collector]

The band leader John Dankworth and his wife of nearly 50 years, the singer Cleo Laine, have been making music for even longer than they have been married. A smattering of their combined output is featured on this fascinating four-CD set, which covers the couple’s lives and music over more then half a century. An extremely compelling historical document. Album of the week. [Roger Trapp - The Independent]

"...an excellent set..." [A. Jones - Music Week]

A history of John and Cleo, or a history of British Jazz through their eyes? Either way it’s a valuable excercise and an excellent box set. [Mike Rogers - Jazz Review]

This beautifully packaged 4-CD box set is a fitting tribute. One of the best presentation box-sets around. [Bev Bevan - Birmingham Mail]

A four-CD set is just about the right size for two of this country’s weightiest exports. [4 Stars, Clive Davis - The Times Online]

If you want a jazz history lesson you really can do no better than start right here with the royal family of UK jazz. [Paul Riley - www.totalmusicmagazine.com]

"...his graceful passion is in plentiful supply..." [5 stars, Andy Gill - The Independent]

Lasting proof of Green’s genius. [8/10, Rob Hughes - Classic Rock]

Blue-eyed Blues Peter Green may be, but it’s the sweetest blue-eyed Blues you’ll ever hear. It’s a worthy package whose appeal should endure long beyond this year’s Christmas market alone. [4 1/2 stars, Jenni Cole - www.musicOMH.com]
