The Persistence of Memory EP, released 8th July 2022.
'The Persistence of Memory' combines a blend of shimmering guitar playing with bold ensemble and horn writing within the context of the jazz sextet. Emily Jane Roberts combines a love for straight-ahead jazz guitar players like Grant Green and Emily Renner with a taste for the contemporary soul/jazz sound, with Nubya Garcia and Hiatus Kaiyote providing good reference points for her fusion of styles. Her music has been supported by Jazz Revelations and Tony Minvielle on Jazz FM and she was a semi-finalist of BBC Young Jazz Musician 2020.
