Synergy in motion, London five-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 simultaneously carving a path solely their own. Ezra Collective marry the delicate
technicalities of jazz musicianship with afrobeat and hip hop, tied together by a sound that’s
unmistakably London. Their live show is one of dynamic union; the strength of their partnership
shines in performances that are commanding yet sensitive, soulful and pertinently groove-laced.
Following a joyous and stunningly cohesive show in May 2016, Boiler Room rightly labelled the
group as “pioneering the new-wave of U.K. jazz”.
As the genre enjoys a new lease of life that is gaining momentum across the country, Ezra
Collective are adding their own fresh and imaginative face to a style that continues to be “as
entertaining as it is educational” (Trench). In a year that saw them sell out legendary London
venue Ronnie Scott’s not once but twice, 2017 also bought with it the release of their
genre-bending second EP, Juan Pablo: The Philosopher. After Ezra Collective took the EP on a
successful tour across the U.K and Europe and completely sold out of the vinyl, Juan Pablo:
The Philosopher went on to win the accolade of Best Jazz Album at Gilles Peterson’s esteemed
Worldwide Awards in January 2018. The band were also recently winners of the 2018 Jazz FM
Awards for “Best UK Jazz Act” and “Live Experience of the Year”, and have their debut album
scheduled for Spring 2019.
