“That this programme is so moving in an era when positive collective actions are so few and far between is no small tribute to the musicians involved.”
“Another example of the burgeoning British jazz scene…”
Vocalist JESSICA RADCLIFFE was the lead singer with NYJO from 2012 to 2014, following on in that role after Emma Smith. However, her debut album, has nothing of swing repertoire or standards or big bands or vocal display. Her Remembrance Project is about the experience of two world wars. She explains the steps that have led her to record this very personal project. Interview by Sebastian Scotney.
“Throughout the evening Radcliffe’s crystalline tone combines effectively with the unison lines and solos of her musicians, making it clear that she is on an exciting road in her development. Her tour next year should offer further confirmation of that.”
