Life on screen is fast and full of pain, while out here along the Essex coast it feels like lockdown is definitely over. It definitely should not feel like this. I am anxious. This may or may not be connected to the fact that there’s more jazz in my column than usual, because I have found comfort, unexpectedly, in free jazz and improvised music. Perhaps I find in it a reflection of the uncertainty of this present moment, unpredictable directions, anxieties, a thickness of emotions.
