You might know the keyboard playing of Joe Armon-Jones from Ezra Collective and Nubya Garcia. He is a spider in the London jazz web, that continues to spread out across jazz, hip hop, and dub music. His solo work is equally impressive. He can play ever so lightly on his albums and at the same time challenge an audience with his virtuosity and complexity. He studied the classic jazz of Oscar Peterson and as a producer he is influenced by broken beat (which originated in London), but also by the experimental work of J Dilla and Herbie Hancock. Armon-Jones takes liberties wherever possible. Because of his influence on the London jazz scene, he is no stranger to North Sea Jazz, but we can finally enjoy one of his own projects.
