  • 1. All Africa
  • 2. All Africa (Alternate Take)

She’s back! As a cross-pollinating creativity recaptures the UK jazz scene, Zara McFarlane returns with a new single offering a different spin on the Max Roach classic ‘All Africa’. Taking the original’s all-out, percussive trip into a looser, more softly mesmerising kind of territory, this new version combines pulsing rhythm with a brighter musicality. The Alternate Take, meanwhile, follows a more groove-oriented direction. Punctuated by bursts of horns and a foot-tapping, syncopated rhythm, it hints at a globally-interconnected spirit. Features Moses Boyd, Binker Golding, Ashley Henry and Nathaniel Cross.
