Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Zara McFarlane is one of the most remarkable rising stars in British soul jazz. The singer from London, who was raised in a Jamaican family, has been compared to Erykah Badu and Cassandra Wilson. She has a pure voice and a unique, contemporary style combining soul, jazz, dub and afro-funk. The intimate vocals of Nina Simone and the enchanting seventies-jazz of Pharoah Sanders are important influences on Zara's songs.

On her most recent album, Arise, Zara McFarlane collaborates with rising stars of UK jazz including drummer/producer Moses Boyd and saxophonists Binker Golding and Shabaka Hutchings (who's known from Heliocentrics). Arise was released on Brownswood Recordings, the label of DJ Gilles Peterson.

Personnel: Zara McFarlane vocals; Peter Edwards: piano, keyboards; Max Luthert: bass; Binker Golding: tenor saxophone; Sam Jones: drums, pads.
