  • Description

    For this irresistible feast of songs, Grammy-Award-winning singer Jacqui Dankworth is joined by an all-star line-up: award-winning composer and jazz pianist David Gordon; Ben Davis, whose group Basquiat Strings have been Mercury-nominated; and Christian Garrick, widely recognised as the UK's leading jazz violinist.

    In 2002 David Gordon added the violin and cello strings of Garrick and Davis to his already established duo with Jacqui Dankworth to create the group Butterfly's Wing.

    Four fantastic musicians, a wonderfully transparent sound-world - by turns magical, witty, powerful - and a panoply of seductive rhythms, cutting-edge improvisation and lyrics, at once heart-rending, joyous and surreal. 'Le Depart' is the group's first recording, here, on Garrick's Flying Blue Whale label.
