Ezra Collective are taking jazz to a new place – respect and influence from the greats before them, but with an undoubtable and undeniable grit – JME is on board with his signature copy of their first EP and was front row at their 2 x sold out Ronnie Scott’s shows earlier this year; the face of jazz is changing.
Their powerful music is marked by the strong influence of Afro Beat, reggae and hip hop brought together through a deep understanding of jazz to create their own unique sound. Born out of Tomorrows Warriors, they have worked with the likes Pharoahe Monch and Ty as well as opening for jazz legend Terence Blanchard.
Their new EP Juan Pablo is due to be released later this year and has already gained considerable buzz. The teaser single Space Is The Place flips the Sun Ra classic, considered as one of the most Avant-Garde jazz experiments of modern times, and delivered something unimaginable – an interpretation of Space Is The Place fit for the dance.
