This week I have been listening to the nu jazz musician Emma-Jean Thackray and her wonderful album, Yellow.
The fun thing about Thackray is that I didn’t know of her before this came up (thanks Jamie) and I don’t know much more now. I know she’s a multi-instrumentalist with her own record label and that I really liked listening to her music but that’s about it. There’s a lot to be said for any musician who can maintain any air of mystery in 2022.
Yellow is a very experimental album with elements of house, jazz, pop, funk and spoken word thrown together to create a real work of art. I don’t know what more I can say about it but I liked it.
