The Ezra Collective keyboardist, a gifted pianist, pulls in contemporary London greats - including rapper Jehst - for this accomplished album If Ezra Collective are the break-out stars of the booming contemporary London jazz scene, the band’s keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones is perhaps its cult hero. 'Turn To Clear View', his latest album, is lithe and deftly arranged. Over eight tracks, this solo record snakes between funk, dub, bass music and hip-hop - yet always retains the jazz-focused grooves to which its author is inextricably linked.
