The second of the pre-release singles following the equally memorable 'Silver Light' from drummer composer Sebastian Rochford (Polar Bear, Sons of Kemet, Andy Sheppard) and pianist Kit Downes (Enemy, Troyka, Golden, Empirical) to introduce A Short Diary out on 20 January. Touchingly elegiac - this piece which comes right at the end of the album was written by Seb's father, Aberdeen poet Gerard Rochford (1932-2019). Sebastian Rochford, above. Photo: Wikiwand

Saxophonist YolanDa Brown has been made an OBE in the New Year Honours. The 40-year-old is honoured for her services to music, music education and broadcasting. Earlier in the year the Afrobeat and reggae-loving jazz tenor saxophonist and TV presenter became chair of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). She says: “I am really honoured to receive this award. My career continues to be eclectic and doesn’t fit in a box, so I am grateful to everyone who continues to walk with me as a musician, broadcaster or campaigner for children and their access to music education. I dedicate this honour to my Grandma, who passed away recently and taught me faith, belief, and resilience, and also to my daughters as they fill the world with love on their journey.” YolanDa Brown, photo: BPI
