Ezra Collective - You Can't Steal My Joy
LP - indie only white vinyl
Release date: April 26th 2019
The debut album from London five-piece Ezra Collective. 'Can't Steal My Joy' marks the ensemble's return following the success of their genre-bending 2017 EP 'Juan Pablo: The Philosopher'.
Ezra Collective’s incredible musicianship and spirited, inclusive approach to music - which draws on afrobeat, hip-hop, grime and more - has seen them break out beyond the burgeoning UK jazz scene. Their 2017 EP, 'Juan Pablo: The Philosopher', won ‘Best Jazz Album’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and the band picked up ‘Best UK Jazz Act’ and ‘Live Experience Of The Year’ at the 2018 Jazz FM Awards.
The five young Londoners played Quincey Jones’ birthday party and recently completed a mosh-pit-filled, sold out UK tour (culminating in a packed out 2,400 capacity hometown show), before headlining Winter JazzFest in New York.
