The growth in popularity of jazz music in recent years has been described as a renaissance or new chapter for the genre. Attracting new audiences has seen a growth in acclaim for international artists including Kamasi Washington & The West Coast Get Down collective or BadBadNotGood. This resurgence has also been felt within british jazz scene. Musicians such as Yussef Kamaal, Shabaka Hutchings, Ruby Rushton, Nubya Garcia or Moses Boyd have put a new stamp on jazz music by fusing elements of classic jazz with modern sounds.
Polish septet, EABS applies a similar philosophy to their music, blending traditional Polish Jazz with sounds from other genres, thus creating a new and personal interpretation of modern jazz. Thus, the band has become a collage of talented characters who came out of different styles and genres. EABS is the innovative approach to jazz through the prism of hip-hop vibe, vibe which brought up these musicians. They blend elements of soul, funk, hip-hop or electro keeping up with fresh approach to composition. What is more, EABS seeks to breathe fire into jazz bringing back its former glory ignoring clichés, exploring and experimenting.
