Emma-Jean Thackray is at the heart of the UK's booming jazz scene. She is utterly prolific, too, having put out her UM Yang record in August 2020, a fantastic Walrus EP in November last year, and now this fantastic debut full length on Movementt. It is a soon-to-be-classic that is as nourishing for the mind and body as it soul. Drawing on everything from funk to soul, fusion to pop, it's a richly detailed album that wins you over effortlessly. The jazz house stylings of 'Say Something' are sure to be huge this summer once we get back to proper clubs, and when Emma-Jean plays her own live shows it's not hard to see the lush sonics and expansive grooves of 'Spectre' being a real highlight.
