English five-piece Ezra Collective is killing the notion that jazz is only for the affluent with their debut studio album, You Can’t Steal My Joy.

With a modern take on the snobby genre, members Joe Armon Jones, Dylan Jones, James Mollison, TJ Koleoso and Femi Koleoso are ushering a new wave of jazz for Gens Y, Z and beyond. The group’s 13-track project holds up strongly from a technical standpoint, utilizing skills from the genre’s deep-rooted history and fusing their contemporary tastes with the help of Jorja Smith and Loyle Carner. You Can’t Steal My Joy opens jazz’s door to the youth like a well-rounded introductory course, and the group will continue to carve their own path while removing the intricate genre’s stigma.
