Emma-Jean Thackray is an English trumpeter, composer and producer. In her pieces brass, strings, and choral segments trace bright lines that wiggle between fusion and funk.
Originally from Yorkshire, Emma-Jean began her musical journey at primary school and by the age of 13 was first cornet in a local brass band.
A bandleader, multi-instrumentalist and producer, she now lives in southeast London and embodies a vision of both spiritual and dance jazz that breaks from the broader UK scene.
Her debut album Yellow is a psychedelic, intense and ecstatic journey. A plunge into a new sonic matter from which everyone emerges transformed. One glimpses the cosmic invocations of Sun Ra Orchestra and Alice Coltrane and, at times, echoes of resplendent Beach Boys.
The concert is held in the Triennale Milano Teatro.
