Emma-Jean Thackray is a multi-award winning jazz composer, producer, arranger and instrumentalist. She has received great underground acclaim and frequent radio play, including from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 6 Music and on Jazz FM. In 2021 she was awarded UK Jazz Act of the Year at the Jazz FM Awards.

The debut album by Emma-Jean Thackray feels exactly like the sort of thing we’ve been longing for over the last 12 months: a transcendent, human, shared experience. Across its 47 minutes, Yellow draws glowing lines between ‘70s jazz fusion and P-funk, the cosmic invocations of Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane and the gorgeous orchestration of the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.

“I wanted the whole thing to sound like a psychedelic trip,” explains Thackray. “You put on the first track, it takes you through this intense thing for almost an hour, and then you emerge on the other side transformed.”

Presented by Music-Net, a partnership between producer and promoter Root Music and Inner City Music, owners and operators of historic Manchester music venue Band on the Wall. In association with Hull Jazz Festival.
