Emma Rawicz recreates songs from the classic album “Coltrane’s Sound” 1964
This evening with form two episodes of Jazz FM’s Classic Album playback series that will broadcast on the station throughout October and in early November on Sunday nights at 9pm.
Hosted by jazz legend Claire Martin OBE, each week the programme concentrates on a pivotal classic jazz album that has stood the test of time.
Recorded in front of a discerning audience at the Hampstead Jazz Club, a panel led by music journalist Jonathan Wingate will play tracks from the album and discuss their opinions on why the album as a collection of tracks worked to create the classic work we know of today, adding a layer of knowledge and understanding that will feed the inquisitive mind of the audience.
Following the playback, Emma will re-create a number of tracks from the classic album, performing a mini-set, which you can hear as part of the broadcast.
Emma Rawicz is a multi-award winning young saxophonist and composer, already making waves on the UK music scene. She has been described as “An astonishing new talent” (Jamie Cullum – BBC Radio 2), ‘a force to be reckoned with’ (Jazzwise) and ‘a fast-rising star‘ (London Jazz News). At the age of 20 she has already recorded and released an eagerly awaited debut album ‘Incantation’ featuring Ant Law, made up entirely of her original compositions. Emma’s second album, recorded in summer 2022 features an all-star band of Ivo Neame, Ant Law, Conor Chaplin and Asaf Sirkis, will be released in early 2023.
Emma has also created a name for herself both as a bandleader and a sideman. A new arrival on the scene, she has already made an impact, regularly playing at major London jazz venues with a wide range of established musicians. Emma is a recipient of the 2021 Drake Yolanda Award and winner of ‘Best Newcomer’ at the 2022 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
Emma’s influences range from modern jazz and fusion to folk and soul, key figures in her musical development including Chris Potter, Ari Hoenig, Kenny Jarrett, Joe Henderson, Chick Corea and more.
Growing up in rural North Devon, Emma didn’t discover jazz until the age of 15, and didn’t pick up a tenor saxophone until a year later, but had spent her childhood otherwise immersed in largely folk and classical music.
Emma is a natural performer. Her music has a unique sound, fusing all her many influences, and her compositions range from lilting Afro Cuban inspired grooves to hard hitting modern jazz and funk numbers.
