Cleo Laine - Cleo Sings Sondheim - 1988

Cleo Line

Laine is known for
her musical versatility:

Her live recordings of concerts
with Dankworth are pure jazz;
1984's That Old Feeling contains
slow, romantic pop-style ballads;
and the album Woman to Woman features songs by popular female singers and songwriters like
Melissa Manchester
and Joni Mitchell.
In addition, Laine has recorded several musical soundtracks, among them Jerome Kern's Show Boat, in which she performed during a run on London's West End, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood, in which she starred on Broadway.

Many of Laine's projects have scaled the divide between "high art" and "pop culture."

She has recorded sonnets by William Shakespeare set to music by jazz composers like Dankworth and Duke Ellington.

For her album Sometimes When We Touch, a collaboration with classical flutist James Galway, she put words to classical melodies by European composers such as Erik Satie and Johann Pachelbel.

She even recorded a jazz version of George Gershwin's opera
Porgy and Bess with singer-pianist Ray Charles.
