The debut from the prodigious keys player, composer & producer is buoyant, celebratory & welcoming - a jazz record with an unmistakable depth with influences in dub, hip-hop & soul.
Different traditions are infused & commingled together. Soulful brass arrangements are coloured with carefully-tuned atmospherics; individual flashes of brilliance are bound into the album’s bigger picture. He’s part of London’s young, jazz-influenced music scene. Drawn from that same close-knit circle, the album features the likes of Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia & Oscar Jerome. It’s playing with those – along with Ezra Collective, which he co-founded & touring with the likes of Ata Kak & Pharoahe Monch – which has honed his playing & grown his ideas. He draws on deep musical understanding, making music which is warm & has a feeling of joy. A document of his vision for bringing together his different influences, it’s also a testament to hard-earned, head-turning musical virtuosity.
