In today’s podcast we meet the man pulling the bass strings with UK breakthrough act the Ezra Collective.
One of the few left-handed bassists around today, TJ Koleoso is currently making a name for himself with the award-winning Ezra Collective. Sonically inspired by the likes of Flea, Bobby Watson and Fela Kuti’s Nweke Atifoh, the basic template is jazz, but there are so many elements bubbling under the surface that it’s impossible to slap any single genre tag onto TJ’s instinctive bass playing. Having recently recorded their second EP at London’s Abbey Road Studios, The Ezra Collective have found a sound to redefine a genre.
In this episode you're going to learn:
All about TJ’s gospel, rock and funk roots.
What makes the Ezra Collective’s rhythm section really tick.
All about their recording session at Abbey Road Studios.
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
