Jazmine Sullivan kills Duffy, Amy and Ronson

Retro soul without any form of solid foundation in the present is bound to be an art form of the undead: it might give the appearance of life but is, essentially, the dead matter of previous generations animated into an uncanny halflife.

Artist and songwriter Jaz mine Sullivan is one of the most interesting talents in soul music, yet still criminally overlooked, until now (she’s finally been signed by Sony/BMG). It’ll be interesting to see whether crossover success will follow. Is it mere coincidence that the revivalist soul artists who currently enjoy mainstream success have a certain skin colour and often (Mark Ronson, Lily Allen) in fact aristocratic backgrounds?
