I just thought I would mention that this weekend the British Press reported on the passing of Sir Johnny Dankworth. I was quite suprised when watching the Sony documentary to hear the archive tape of Daniel citing Sir Johnny as an influence and inspiration (and maybe a source too...)

I think the impact of jazz music on Daniel's music is often underated. I think it is pretty starling that he openly cited a British jazz influence while residing in a nation that produced some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. That is the mark of Sir Johnny Dankworth, a man who was at the forefront of British Jazz for decades and had admirers from all over the world from a wide variety of backgrounds and interests.

John Dankworth "backed" Daniel on the tracks Desperate Man Blues and Keep Punching Joe from Hi, How Are You.  They're credited as "Big Band Danny and the Danksworth Orchestra".

Yes, I'm not sure they were aware they were backing him when they tracked that session though... Smiley
