The One To Watch
Jorja Smith – Rose Rouge
This week’s One To Watch is from UK singer Jorja Smith with the song ‘Rose Rouge’
This track is a taken from Blue Note Re:imagined, a brand new collection of classic Blue Note tracks, reworked and newly recorded by a selection of the UK scene’s most exciting young talents today. Representing a bridge between the past and future, the project will feature contributions from a rollcall of internationally acclaimed jazz, soul and R&B act.
This song which originally appeared on St Germain’s 2000 Blue Note album ‘Tourist’, was itself based on a sample of Marlena Shaw’s “Woman of the Ghetto”. Smith’s stunning new version takes its cues from classic soul, jazz and reggae and perfectly captures the enduring Blue Note aesthetic.
