Led by Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama alumnus drummer-vocalist Rod Oughton (Hudson Taylor, James Taylor Quartet, Hannah Grace) OK Aurora are an eclectic vocals-flavoured eight piece who play Oughton music and lyrics the melting pot of styles present as easily traversing AfroCuban terrain as lightly touching on jazz-funk and pop, the singer songwriter sensibility where it lands a little like the calibre of Glenn Tilbrook in embryo. The band released Only In Autumn last year and members also include trumpet wiz Alexandra Ridout. Hear Alex especially at the beginning of 'Nothing's Like a New Love.'

Touring Luma and playing Chelsea jazz club the 606 tonight from 8pm this original piano trio led by pianist Emily Francis does not take the usual overly dreamy orthodox route. A certain fire comes instead from drummer Jamie Murray who brings a Mark Giuliana-like energy to the trio while leader pianist Emily Francis not to be outdone offers plenty of variety and pulsating ideas especially when switching to keyboards and manages to keep the trio sounding contemporary rather than a tribute to a lost age. Largely original tunes, the trio skirt round jazz-rock and electronica textures with bassist Trevor Boxall an alert presence at all times. Tickets. Luma is currently at no. 4 in our best albums from the UK top 10 in 2022 so far. Emily Francis, top. Photo: publicity shot
