The Jazz Thieves steal Duke Ellington’s melodicism, Tom Waits’s grit, Bill Withers’s soulful lyricism, and Kamasi Washington’s modern edge, uniting all it with a jazz imagination. They released their first full-length album, “Brooklyn Elegy,” in late 2016. They are led by the bassist/composer/lyricist John Gray and feature Matt Robbins on vocals and keyboard, Ayumi Ishito on saxophone, and Tim Ford on drums.
