Positioned neatly between the twin worlds of modern jazz and eclectic nu-soul. Zara McFarlanes album confirms the presence of a very special young voice on the UK scene. The album exudes a liberal dose of subtle. stealthy swing. yet. as steeped as she is in the jazz tradition. Zara has brought an eminently soul undercurrent to what she does. and her music will appeal to audiences weaned on Jill Scott and Erykah Badu as easily as to those more attuned to Cassandra Wilson or Dianne Reeves.
