In this third album, the enchanting and beautiful Leyla manages to capture moments of pure joy. She is the kind of musician that tells a story. A New-Yorker with Haitian roots, Leyla settled in the bayou of Louisiana to explore her Creole roots and to dig out and spread the message of social and environmental injustice. She really came into her own during those eight years spent in the New Orleans sunshine and has even abandoned her cello to embrace the clarinet, violin, piano and electric guitar. Now, the multi-instrumentalist is mixing it up more than ever, supported by a group for the very first time, King James & The Special Men. The retro folk of The Capitalist Blues dabbles in calypso (Mize Pa Dous), R&B (Me and My Baby) and Creole blues (Lavi Vye Neg) and Leyla’s vocals alternate seamlessly between Creole and English. A very well-arranged album that captures the leisurely lifestyle of the tropics. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Jacob Collier, the young prodigy whose career was spring-boarded by the popularity of his YouTube videos, has made a name for himself by fusing jazz and vocals with groove, folk, trip-hop, classical, Brazilian gospel and soul. His first album in 2016, the aptly titled In My Room (a reference to his cover of the Beach Boys song with the same name), was influenced by great soul artists like Stevie Wonder, Bobby McFerrin and Ed Motta. Two years later with Djesse Vol.1 which he recorded with the Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley, Collier reveals a new facet to his musical talent and ability to think outside of the box. For this album, he wrote the compositions and arrangements and clearly moves away from jazz to embrace a variety of genres: pop, gospel, musical, world, soul, the list is endless. His symphonic and melodious music is supported by the voices of groups Take 6 and Voces8, soul sister Laura Mvula, Moroccan Hamid El Kasri and even his own mother, Suzie Collier. In this musical pick-and-mix, Jacob Collier even covers Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic from The Police and All Night Long from Lionel Richie to make this journey even crazier. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

The prophet has returned! Van Morrison, he who brought us the timeless Gloria and Brown Eyed Girl, steps back in time for his new album The Prophet Speaks. The Irish bard delves into the world of jazz, blues and rhythm’n’blues with his renditions of classics from John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Willie Dixon and Soloman Burke, to name but a few. Such are the talents of Van The Man that he even includes six of his own compositions (Got to Go Where The Love Is, 5am Greenwich Mean Time, Love Is Hard Work, Spirit Will Provide, Ain’t Gonna Moan No More and The Prophet Speaks) within the genre of jazz’n’blues’n’soul. “It was important for me to get back to recording new music as well as doing some of the blues material that has inspired me from the beginning” he says. Once again, the album features its fair share of musical virtuosos, including killer organist Joey DeFrancesco (who co-wrote You’re Driving Me Crazy with Morrison), guitarist Dan Wilson, drummer Michael Ode and saxophonist Troy Roberts. A classy and classical album that doesn’t look to reinvent the genre but rather to revive its original soul. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
