Our ongoing Jazz Club Playlist has been updated this month by young jazz artist Allexa Nava.
Hailing from Peru, the London-based saxophonist came onto our radar with her debut single, Good Job Phillip! towards the end of 2020. An ambitious first release, recorded as a quartet with Nadav Schneerson of Yadasofi, Madeleine Jones and Amyna Gadiaga, the sax-led effort earmarked Allexa as one to watch this year.
Curating our Jazz Club Playlist, we now get a chance to hear some of Allexa’s influences and go-to artists, as she picks the likes of Melissa Aldana, Nubya Garcia, Esperanza Spalding and more female acts for an International Women’s Day themed update.
