John DankworthIf you know the English jazz scene you probably think of the late John Dankworth either as a brilliant jazz composer and saxophonist or as Cleo Laine's husband but his talents were too great and too broad to be confined to any one genre. His setting of Paul Wigmore's "Light of the world" is a case in point it's got a lovely gentle melody with harmonies that ebb and flow with the text. Enjoy :-)
