8 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The follow-up to Joe Armon-Jones’ 2018 debut full-length Starting Today once again captures the keyboardist’s melodic songcraft, sonic imagination, and beat-driven aesthetic. After expanding his creative reach with drummer/bandleader Makaya McCraven on Where We Come From (Chicago x London Mixtape), Armon-Jones regroups with close London scene colleagues on Turn to Clear View, featuring guitarist Oscar Jerome, drummer Moses Boyd, trumpeter Dylan Jones, tenor saxophonist Nubya Garcia, and others on a set full of rippling funk, inspired Wurlitzer harmony, and layered synth dreamscapes. Georgia Anne Muldrow’s voice on the gorgeous “Yellow Dandelion,” Jehst’s vocal/rap spot on “The Leo & Aquarius,” and Obongjayar’s flowing, laidback turn on the closing “Self:Love” round out a head-bopping, concise album.
