Joe Armon-Jones recently gave life to his second solo release, in which he showcases his multiple disciplines alongside a bevy of talent including Georgia Anne Muldrow and Obongjayar, as well as frequent collaborators, Nubya Garcia and Oscar Jerome. The project draws on a number of influences outside of jazz, with hip hop, RnB and funk all finding their way into the mix. The Leo & Aquarius, which you can listen to above, sees the Ezra Collective founding member teaming up with YNR Records head and UKHH stalwart, Jehst. Turn to Clear View is out now on Brownswood Recordings.
