Café Central - 19. septiembre
Even amongstBritain’s vibrant modernist jazz scene, Joe Armon-Jonesstands out as a remarkable talent.A virtuoso keyboardist, he possesses that rare ability to stay true to the genres roots while also connectingwith a wider, more youthful audience. Spinning unrestrained into hip-hop, funk and dub, his tracks alsooften pulsate with a feverish, punk-infused energy.
Now Joe Armon-Jones returns with his new single‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’. It’s a head-spinning blend ofluminous jazz-funk piano and synths, skittering, off-kilter percussion and a languorous ear-worm bass. Aswith the best of his work,‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’places his cerebral compositions into an engaging, club-friendly context.
While Armon-Jones is at the top of his game, the track’s fluid grooves are heightened by two similarlyexceptional musicians.Kwake Bass, an in-demand drummer who’s worked withKate Tempest,SamphaandJoey Bada$$, switches the beat seemingly effortlessly from frenetic to laid-back. His skills areperfectly complemented byMutale Chashi, bassist of London Afrobeats collective KOKOROKO.
