Nick Woodmansey AKA Emanative second release on Gilles Peterson Brownswood record label back in 2015 featured many of the UK’s leading jazz musicians and was a big success, mainly due to the quality of the project but in part due to its link to the Steve Reid Foundation, it aims to help people working in music who are in crisis. We also seek to support emerging new talent through education initiatives. We want to see a world where people working in music, especially those who have devoted their lives to it, are able to get the help they need when they need it most. All funds raised from the release will go directly to the Foundation

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Emanative’s ‘The Light Years Of The Darkness’ album be our first release for the Steve Reid Foundation. In Keeping with Steve’s open ended approach and his musical history Nick Woodmansey has delivered a knock out Jazz and beyond album.” – Gilles Peterson 

The latest single is a new project with Jazzman records, taken from the forthcoming album 'Earth' from Emanative, with a sublime vocal performance from Ahu, an upbeat positive and spiritual groove paves the way for Jazzman Records new 'Jazz45' label, exciting new sounds from the world of independent & creative jazz artists..
