Ezra Collective have given Wayne Shorter’s ‘Footprints’ a fresh twist as a part of new compilation 'Blue Note Re:imagined'

Ezra Collective are the latest act to unveil a brand new cover version as a part of the ‘Blue Note Re:imagined’ compilation project, revealing their own take on Wayne Shorter’s ‘Footprints’

A spinning new take, it’s the perfect combination of eras and sounds - resulting in something bloody marvellous for a summer’s day 

Speaking about the version, Ezra Collective said: “This project means so much to us in Ezra Collective. For us, Blue Note encapsulates everything that jazz is. Everchanging, evermoving with times and always swinging. From Herbie to Wayne, Glasper and Jose James. Across the decades it’s been a constant source of inspiration, so to contribute to that is a dream come true."

"Footprints was a song we learnt as teenagers, and a song we’ve haven’t left alone since. It felt the perfect opportunity to pay homage to a hero of ours, Wayne Shorter, as well as document the journey we’ve made as a band since then.”

Ezra Collective’s take on ‘Footprints’ follows on from Jorja Smith’s immediate cover of ‘Rose Rouge’ - revealed previously with news around the project. 'Blue Note Re:imagined' sees a range of artists offering up their own takes on classic cuts from the famed label - with further tracks from the likes of Mr Jukes (aka Jack from Bombay Bicycle Club), Steam Down, Jordan Rakei and more

The full album will be released on September 25th, but until then - click play on ‘Footprints’ below:
