Tomorrow's Warriors - EZRA Collective @ Royal Albert Hall, London 11 Nov 2013

EZRA Collective is the award-winning band born out of Tomorrow's Warriors - a non-profit organisation that champions, nurtures and promotes the most diverse collective of young jazz musicians in the UK. EZRA first came onto the scene in May 2012 when, as Tomorrow's Warriors, they were victorious in the Yamaha Jazz Experience Band Competition Under-19s category. Since then, they have forged a path to become one of the most exciting young bands in the country. In 2013, after earning the prize for BEST JAZZ ENSEMBLE at the Music For Youth National Festival, they made their Royal Albert Hall debut at the MFY School Proms on 11th November 2013 playing 'Shade Of Scarlet' by Femi Koleoso. Congratulations James, Dylan, Joe, TJ and Femi on a stunning Royal Albert Hall debut! EZRA smashed it! facebook.com/EzraCollective @EzraCollective tomorrowswarriors.org facebook.com/TomorrowsWarriorsMusic @Tom_Warriors
