Jazz five-piece Ezra Collective will play tomorrow at Concorde2 one of the last shows this year in UK before heading to tour United States of America. The announcement comes ahead of Ezra Collective’s debut album, You Can’t Steal My Joy, which features Jorja Smith, KOKOROKO and Loyle Carner, and looks destined to cement the band’s status as one of the UK’s most exciting groups.
London 5-piece Ezra Collective are proving themselves as a harmonious tour de force. Their sound nods respectfully to a classic jazz footprint, celebrating the originators whilst also carving a path solely their own. They marry the delicate technicalities of jazz with afrobeat & hip hop, tied together by a sound that’s unmistakably London.
Ezra Collective’s incredible musicianship and spirited approach to music – which draws on afrobeat, Latin, hip-hop, grime and more – has seen them break out beyond the thriving UK jazz scene. The five friends have already completed a mosh pit-filled and totally sold out UK tour, played at Quincy Jones’ birthday party, and recently toured America for the first time.
