Tina Harrod’s stunning second solo album Worksongs proves she is equally at home channelling the power and emotion of jazz greats like Nina Simone and Billie Holiday as she is in more familiar soul terrain. And she does so with such impeccable intuition and raw feeling that it takes your breath away.

Tina and her stellar band bring the same approach to the varied collection of songs on this album – from the excellent jazz spin on Stevie Wonder’s ‘Big Brother’ to her beautiful rendition of Nick Drake’s ‘Riverman’ or her sophisticated and revelatory take on Portishead’s ‘Glory Box’. Two of her own songs from her acclaimed debut album Shacked up in Paradise are also reinvigorated here as are a definitive collection of jazz classics such as ‘Comes Love’, ‘Round Midnight’ and ‘Feelin’ Good’.
