These are songs to summon the sun into your day and your mind. They're mostly my mum's recommendations, as she's a clarinettist and a real jazz fiend. When it's cloudy and grey (which is most weeks in the UK), this playlist seems to make everything feel sunnier and easier. Equally, if I wake up feeling unmotivated it picks me up and gets me going. I've found that during lockdown, dancing in the kitchen to jazz, funk and Latin music has been my escape. Close your eyes and you can feel the sun on your back.
