The selections on this album span 70 years of popular song, because the more Susannah felt she knows about singers and songs, the more she adores the women who started it all: the great Empress of the Blues, Bessie Smith, and the mother of all modern popular singing, Ethel Waters. She also feels a great affinity for Brazilian songs, the sound of the language and the sadness and seriousness of the lyrics, and they too are included here.

Naive are delighted to present a new fascinating journey into the heart of the Elizabethan Age. This anthology contains four pieces connected with John Dowland and others by the generation of lute composers that preceded him. Lute virtuoso Hopkinson Smith named the piece 'Mad Dog', as a symbol of his creative process: “There are many orphaned lute pieces in English sources that have come down to us with no name at all. I have taken the liberty of christening four such pieces in this programme with names that seem to suit their musical spirits.

A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke features pianist Vijay Iyer and the musician he has described as his “hero, friend and teacher”, trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. The two had played together extensively but this album is their first collaborative album, recorded in New York City in October 2015. The centrepiece of the programme is the mostly-improvised and spellbinding title suite, dedicated to innovative Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi, whose improvisatory imagery evokes abstracted rhythms. Iyer's piano and Smith's trumpet interact here with creative sensitivity to tone, texture and space.
