Born on February 2, 1994, Joe Armon-Jones is a British jazz keyboardist, composer, and producer. Best known as a member of London-based jazz outfit Ezra Collective, he has become a pioneering force on the modern jazz scene. Mixing classic influences with bass, dub, electronica, and hip-hop, Armon-Jones has taken jazz to a different level. He has also played with fellow London jazz artist Nubya Garcia and has toured with Ata Kak and Pharoahe Monch. His first EP outside of Ezra Collective, 2017’s Idiom, was recorded with fellow British artist and frequent collaborator Maxwell Owin. His 2018 album, Starting Today, was released on the influential Brownswood Recordings label. That was followed four months later by the Starting Today in Dub release. His Icy Roads (Stacked) EP, issued in 2019, featured drummer KwAkE bAsS and drummer Mutale Chashi. In the latter part of 2019, he released his second album, Turn to Clear View. The album featured musical assistance from Moses Boyd, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Obangjayar, Jehst, and Nubya Garcia.
