Joe Armon-Jones on Saturday 1st December 2018
One of the leading lights of UK’s bright burning jazz movement Joe Armon-Jones began playing piano at the age of 7. Like many of the scene’s young stars he is an alumni of both Tomorrow’s Warriors and Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
As well as being a founding member of the Ezra Collective, he has performed with a wide range of artists from Pharoahe Monch to ATA KAK, and is a regular fixture in the bands of Nubya Garcia & Mr Jukes.
Following 2017’s “Idiom”, a duo project with producer Maxwell Owin, and contributing to Brownwood’s We Out Here project with the track “Go See”, Joe released his debut album “Starting Today” in May 2018.
The album features includes fixtures from London’s vital jazz community; Nubya Garcia, Oscar Jerome and leader of The Afrikan Revolution, Asheber. On 'Starting Today', Joe, as described by Pitchfork, “takes a modern-jazz journey from the discrete influences on that eclectic London sound to its thrillingly diverse present - and stakes his claim as one of the scene’s most promising voices.” Slipping in elements of house, 2-step, reggae and broken beat into his jazzy style, the album “distinguishes the pianist and composer as a soulful, modern producer” (Redbull).
Touring the album, Joe Armon-Jones showcases these talents alongside his ability to excitingly and passionately lead the band with a deep love for music and appreciation of the moment.
