Joe Armon-Jones, YES, Manchester - 1st December 2018

Joe and his band are incredible musicians. The horn section is fantastic and in some ways they are the front line but all the musicians are so talented and play together so well. I felt the live performance by Joe's band was much more jazz influenced and free form than their recorded album. I enjoyed the versions they played live and listened to the album all the way home. They are each quite different but both are great. Give these talented, non main-stream musicians your support! Buy their music!
The venue was great. Small, friendly and affordable. I am a miserable old bugger who is always amazed and annoyed by the large number of people who talk through a gig....even through brilliant solos and quieter sections. I suppose they have paid to support the band so its their choice but last night was especially loud. Not sure if anything can be done.

Already receiving critical acclaim across the board, Joe Armon-Jones’ sophomore album ‘Turn To Clear View’ is being hailed as a remarkable moment in his career.
Praised or pushing the boundaries of sound ,‘Turn To Clear View’ finds Armon-Jones is expanding into exciting new territory. It’s a set which blurs the lines between bass-heavy dub, contemporary club culture and his background as a pioneering force in the modern jazz scene. That singular vision is heightened with flourishes of R&B, hip-hop and p-funk. It’s music of substance - relevant to the here and now, but sure to be heralded as an influence in the years that follow.

Turn To Clear View has been previewed by key tracks ‘Icy Roads (Sracked)’, and ‘Yellow Dandelion’ which featured neo-soul visionary Gerogie Anne Mudlrow. The tracks have received support at 6 Music, 1Xtra and Radio 1 from DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Jamz Supernova, Tom Ravenscroft and Huey Morgan.

Between his highly acclaimed solo career and his work with the influential Ezra Collective, Joe Armon-Jones is at the epicentre of the London underground scene. The album reflects this with features by hard hitting rapper Jehst, Obongjayar (a collaborator with Richard Russell) , soul vocals Asheber, regular bandmates Oscar Jerome, Moses Boyd (a resident DJ at 1Xtra) and Nubya Garcia (signed to Domino as part of Nérija), whose uncompromising yet accessible sax on ‘You Didn’t Care’ stands out as a highlight.
