In early 2018, the compilation We Out Here released on Gilles Peterson's label burst onto the young British jazz scene, revealing his dynamism, his energy and above all, his eclecticism. Many attribute saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, Melt Yourself Down...) as the leader of this trend: a role he has always refused to embody. The boundaries of this jazz, as with musicians of this generation, are deliberately blurred, and the five members of Ezra Collective were all present on this Qobuzissime compilation. With You Can't Steal My Joy, the London group led by drummer Femi Koleoso finally signed their first album. In 2017, their EP Juan Pablo: The Philosopher (which closed with a beautiful cover of Sun Ra's Space is the Place) was a sensation, winning numerous awards and offering a very Afrobeat vision of jazz. These unique qualities can be found on this ultra-funky opus. With Joe Armon Jones on keyboards, TJ Koleoso on double bass, Dylan Jones on trumpet and James Mollison on saxophone, Koleoso orchestrates a refreshingly festive symphony focusing on brass and rhythms: a hybrid made of afrobeat, jazz, hip hop, reggae, Caribbean music and soul. And to better reflect this panoramic vision, Ezra Collective goes on this multi-colored journey with soul sister Jorja Smith (Reason in Disguise), rapper Loyle Carner (What Am I to Do?) and the afrobeat group Kokoroko (Shakara). All that's left is to enjoy this beautiful, eclectic parade of groovy landscapes. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Impulse! Orange was the New Black

Norah Jones in 10 Songs

Even though her albums are released on jazz label Blue Note, Norah Jones’s music has never simply been jazz, just as it has never solely been pop, nor folk, country or soul… Since the early noughties, the American singer and pianist has embraced many styles, often breaking norms in pursuit of her own unique sound, a sound she loves to share through collaborations with different musicians of diverse origin and style. Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.
