Gilles Peterson has high hopes for 28 year-old British jazz starlet Zara McFarlane. She's already made waves thanks to collaborations with a wide variety of established jazz players - most notably Denys Baptiste, Orphy Robinson, Soweto Kinch and Jazz Jamaica All Stars - and looks likely to gain wider recognition thanks to this small but perfectly formed debut album. Based on her 2010 EP of the same name, it perfectly showcases her talents as a singer and songwriter with enormous potential. Backed by a smart jazz band whose sterling efforts don't go unnoticed, McFarlane's vocals shift between casual sassiness and heartfelt beauty. It's a great sound.
