Not a week goes by without a new prodigy emerging from the (very) lively UK jazz scene. Ashley Henry sees the genre as a plurality, mixing together traditional sounds with soul, funk, rap afrobeat, grime and Caribbean sonorities. Born in November 1991, and a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music since 2016, the young London pianist is the talk of the town, having already collaborated with household names such as the rapper Loyle Carner, singers from Christine & The Queens, and Zara Mcfarlane, as well as popular jazz cats like Terence Blanchard, Robert Glasper, Jean Toussaint, Jason Marsalis or Anthony Joseph. For his first real studio album, titled Beautiful Vinyl Hunter, Henry crafted an honest musical portrait of his education and multi-cultural heritage. “My music is a clear expression of what I am, of what London is in all her glorious diversity. The immigrant in me has roots that go back to the 17th century. It’s important to me that my music today reflects that lineage, through different styles of music and different generations.”


That much is done with energy and vigor, with three drummers – Luke Flowers (Cinematic Orchestra), Eddie Hick and Makaya McCraven, trumpet players Theo Croker, Jaimie Branch and Keyon Harrold, saxophone player Binker Golding, bassist Dan Casimir, percusionnist Ernesto Marichales, singers Judi Jackson and Milton Suggs as well as Sparkz the rapper. Like a new millenium Herbie Hancock, Ashley Henry has a warm, generous groove ; he fusions whatever he touches with ease, such as the Solange - Cranes (In the Sky) cover at the mid-point of his album ! No calculating approaches, juste pure pleasure and the joy of sharing music. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Bill Evans in 10 Albums

Without him, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and a few thousand other jazz pianists would play differently. More than forty years after his death, the legacy of Bill Evans hasn’t lost any of its influence. On the contrary, it is difficult to sort through his bottomless discography without finding even an incidental recording that doesn’t tower above 90% of the competition. Here are 10 of his albums, subjectively selected…

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.
