Ezra Collective-member and ‘one of the scene’s most promising voices.’ (Pitchfork)

Liveurope concert:
The first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote emerging European music.

Ever since AB celebrated the 100th anniversary of the very first jazz album with a tsunami of successful jazz concerts (under the banner JAZZ 100) in 2017, our love of the genre has only increased. We have already presented a number of unique jazz scene reports with the focus on London (from Shabaka Hutchings via Kamaal Williams to Nubya Garcia), Manchester (from GoGo Penguin to Matthew Halsall), Chicago (from Makaya McCraven to Ben LaMar Gay) and, of course, Belgium (from BeraadGeslagen via Steiger to Glass Museum).

‘The Rebirth of Jazz’ is a fact. Jazz continues to reinvent itself, the stream of interesting releases is now unstoppable, and the genre attracts a notably young audience. All good reasons to commit to jazz this fall, with concerts by Theon Cross, Angel Bat Dawid, Oscar Jerome, Ezra Collective, TaxiWars, Joe-Armon Jones, Ill Considered, Sarathy Korwar and Nérija (with members of KOKOROKO, SEED Ensemble, …).

Keyboard-player Joe Armon-Jones is not only a founding member of Ezra Collective, but has also toured with Ata Kak (Awesome Tapes From Africa) and rapper Pharoahe Monch. With his own trio, he last year released the highly acclaimed debut ‘Starting Today’ – described by The Wire as ‘bass-rich music hustle straight out of the London soul-jazz-dance lineage.’ His latest single ‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’ is again recorded with drummer KwAkE BASs (see: Kate Tempest, Sampha and Joey Bada$$) and KOKOROKO-bassist Mutale Chashi.

In the press ‘His playing has always veered from the lightning-paced freneticism of fusion-era Herbie Hancock to the slippery grooves of Lee Scratch Perry dubs.’ (The Guardian)
AB fun fact Joe Armon-Jones already passed by AB twice in 2018: both in his own right (during the ‘We Out Here’ two-dayer and as keyboard player with Ezra Collective.
