Ezra Collective have released “Reason in Disguise,” a new single featuring rising star Jorja Smith.
Ezra Collective are at the forefront of the new wave jazz movement in the United Kingdom. Influenced by hip hop and Afrobeat, with strong foundations in traditional jazz, music from the London-based five-piece is often full of many welcome surprises. None more so than this fresh collaboration with Smith, who was just named UK Breakthrough of the Year at this year’s AIM Independent Music Awards.
The marriage of slick, loungey instrumentals and Smith’s effortless vocals in this jam will leave you wondering how this partnership hasn’t happened sooner.
