Collective Minds presents the London five-piece Ezra Collective in Asia.

Ezra Collective – The pioneer of the wave of UK jazz movement is performing in Seoul and Singapore for the very first time!
Their live show infuses a sensitive, soulful and pertinently groove-laced. Following a joyous and stunningly cohesive show in May 2016, Boiler Room rightly labelled the group as “pioneering the new-wave of U.K. jazz”.

As the genre enjoys a new lease of life that is gaining momentum across the country, Ezra Collective are adding their own fresh and imaginative face to a style that continues to be “as entertaining as it is educational” (Trench). In a year that saw them sell out legendary London venue Ronnie Scott’s twice, 2017 also bought with it the release of their genre-bending second EP, Juan Pablo: The Philosopher. After Ezra Collective took the EP successfully across their Europe and UK tour and completely sold out of the vinyl, Juan Pablo: The Philosopher went on to win the accolade of Best Jazz Album at Gilles Peterson’s esteemed Worldwide Awards in January 2018. The band were also recent winners of the 2018 Jazz FM Awards for “Best UK Jazz Act” and “Live Experience of the Year”, and have their debut album scheduled for Spring 2019.

Recently they’ve launched the newest Fast-Paced soundtrack showcasing instantaneous energy hums with excitement and ambition of new possibilities! With the saxophones being a prominent theme throughout over a rapid heartbeat of the bass. “Quest For Coin” have really showcased the band the ability to extract multiple genres together with no restrictions and bringing freedom to the listeners. Yes, we are truly impressed!
