Yet another 20 year old from North London, Amy Winehouse is leading the charge for new British Jazz (was there old British Jazz?) Incorporating dub, hip-hop, and big '60s wall-of-sound girl group elements, it's quite smart and appealing and fierce. She twists her voice into an odd Macy Greyish contortion and then lets it loose into a glorious wave of quite lovely eager emotion. And you get the sense that she's just barely finding her way yet.
