Live: Joe Armon-Jones
Joe Armon-Jones, Ezra Collective co-founder and talented keys player, is taking the UK Jazz scene by storm with his combination of traditional Jazz, Hip-Hop and Dub flows. Armon-Jones combines free-flowing, dynamic energy with a bigger vision. The prodigious, head-turning keys player with ludicrous chops on the piano has brought together some of the UK’s finest performers into a band that effortlessly combine skittering rhythms and soaring melodies into a dazzlingly complex sound that’s made them one of the most exciting live acts in the EU at the moment.
Armon-Jones’ debut album, Starting Today, released on 4th May 2018, has since received over 2.5 million plays on Spotify, sustains over 180,000+ monthly listeners and the tracks are consistently featured on taste-making, Spotify-curated playlists like UK Jazz, The State of Jazz, Poolside Disco and many more. Tracks from the debut album are frequently supported on BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 2, NTS, Solid Steel Radio, Balamii, Worldwide FM, and in particular BBC Radio 6’s UK Jazz Special at Maida Vale with Gilles Peterson. Nominated for Best Jazz Album at the Worldwide Awards, Armon-Jones is a staple in the UK – and world – jazz scene.
