    The future of Jazz looks bright today



    In case you wonder; her name is Jala Heywood and she just turned 11.

    Any fans of Melanie de Biasio on this board? I haven't seen her mentioned just yet.

    She is a Belgium Jazz singer and multi-instrumentalist often advertised as 'the Belgium Billy Holiday". I just discovered her music and I have only heared her two latest releases but I am pretty impressed by them.

    The last one "lilies" is a pretty sparsely arranged collection of songs. Dark and brooding atmosphere somewhere between Jazz, Soul and (art) pop. And her voice; I just cannot get enough of it.

    here are a song from it:


    Here previous release "blackened cities" is completely different. Its an EP that contains just one 25-minute track with a full band. It often reminds me a bit of a more jazzy latter Talk Talk!



    Her music is on bandcamp and I think most streaming services.

    Seen MdB a few times in recent years... Never went to a concert specifically for her, but she was on the bill.

    She's had considerable cultural press coverage compared to other experimental Belgian projects, probably because she sings (and therefore is not uniquely instrumental)

    She's probably hovering in the top 15 jazz issue of the year her album was released in.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from heroin-addicts to crazy ones

    Sounds intriguing! Thanks for the heads up.

    yeah, a female vocalist is considerably easier to market then some nerdy guys improvising on their instruments.

    Hello Gang!.
    Today I've been listening to Ocean Fanfare's:

    - "Imagine Sound Imagine Silence" (2014):
    It's a favotite here with Tyshawn Sorey on drums and their newest:

    - "First Nature": (Love it too!)

    OF.jpg

    Ocean Fanfare has started the recordings of Third Nature, an album trilogi. First Nature is the first chapter. Charged with the acoustic sound of the freejazz quartet, it pays tribute to biodiversity. The wild growing interplay balances the lyrical and the melancholic.-

    - With Peter Bruun on drums. -

    "Owing a big thanks to Anna Tsing’s book ‘The Mushroom at the end of the world’ the albums is entitled:"
    .First Nature - Ecological relations (April 4, 2019)
    .Second Nature - Capitalist transformation (2020)
    .Third Nature - Temporal polyphony (2021)

    Regards!.
