“Sweet Little Mystery”
Tribute to John Martyn
Sarah-Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and r&b singer who topped the UK pop charts for a month in 1986 (with The Communards’ disco version of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’) and then eloquently and joyously sidestepped the mainstream ever after. Morris’s magnificent soul voice and emotional power would have brought multiple Grammy awards and celebrity status to most singers with her charisma and drive. But for over 25 years of a unique career, Morris has steered by her own star, not the music industry’s, and that independence has brought her a devoted audience, inspired by her belief in the power of song to change hearts and minds.
