Every week, the “New English Jazz Scene” section gets a bit larger. Although Blume might be Nérija’s first album, it isn’t the founding members’ first rodeo. The gang is almost entirely female: Nubya Garcia and Cassie Kinoshi (KOKOROKO, Seed Ensemble) on saxophones, trumpet player Sheila Maurice-Grey (KOKOROKO), trombonist Rosie Turton, drummer Lizy Exell, guitarist Shirley Tetteh (Nardeydey) as well as Mr. Rio Kai on bass. Young virtuosos who have proven their generation to be dynamic and highly capable of twisting the blue note to fit any mold.  Mirroring the 2018 compilation We Out Here (a Qobuzissime record!), which was a sort of manifesto of the scene itself, Blume is jazz intertwined with soul, rock, Afrobeat and Caribbean rhythms. Its strongest feature is the brass section, which is extremely tight and carries as much momentum as it does bewildering melodic power. All the players are “for the song”, and this team spirit can be felt in each moment of this record’s silky groove. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976, the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman ran some kind of mad laboratory in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?
