Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth
at the Gualala Arts Center
Through an amazing
stroke of good luck, and the
connections of Fred Adler of
KTDE radio to the San
Francisco jazz scene, the

British jazz innovator, will be
performing in the intimate
setting of the Coleman
Auditorium at Gualala Arts on Friday, September 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Cleo Laine has performed many times in Carnegie
Hall in New York City, and her recording, "Tenth Anniversary
Concert at Carnegie Hall," won a Grammy Award. She has also
been nominated for Grammies in the fields of jazz, classical,
and popular music - an incredible feat for a vocalist. In fact,
both Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times hail Cleo Laine as
the "Greatest all-round singer in the world."
She has starred on Broadway, sung with the Duke
Ellington Orchestra, and recorded "Porgy and Bess" with Ray
Charles and duets with Mel Tormé on RCA Records. In 1991,
in Los Angeles, Cleo Laine was given the Lifetime
Achievement Award by the US recording industry. Visit Cleo's
Sir John Dankworth, arranger and composer, as well

Larry Dunlap on piano, Seward McCain on bass and
Jim Zimmerman on drums.
