"Mixing jazz with hip-hop and dub production influences, the album features a band including Nubya Garcia (whose new solo EP Armon-Jones plays on), Moses Boyd, Oscar Jerome, and Maxwell Owin...

...Starting Today  follows Armon-Jones’ Idiom EP with Owin – one of our favourite 12″s of 2017, collaborations on Brownswood’s stellar We Out Here compilation and Ezra Collective’s Juan Pablo: The Philosopher LP." - The Vinyl Factory

"A 100% proof blend of jazz, fusion, hip hop and dub, the album showcases Armon-Jones's breathtaking sonic-wizardry. It also reveals him to be a composer of note. His lyrics are perhaps a tad perfunctory, but no matter—he writes great tunes and interesting arrangements. And he brings a seemingly inexhaustible bag of timbral tricks to the Wurlitzer. The band, drawn in the main from the We Out Here family, is top ranking, too, with a killer rhythm section and strong frontline-contributions from Garcia and trumpeter Dylan Jones. Armon-Jones is the main solo voice, however...

...Brownswood, the label formed by London club DJ and BBC Radio 6 Music broadcaster Gilles Peterson in 2006, figures large in this spring 2018 musical high-tide. Peterson's previous label, the jazz dance and acid jazz-centric Talkin' Loud, defined one corner of the London jazz world in the 1990s. Brownswood is doing something similar right now. It is the sort of outfit that gives monopolies a good name." - All About Jazz

"On Starting Today, Armon-Jones takes a modern-jazz journey from the discrete influences on that eclectic London sound to its thrillingly diverse present—and stakes his claim as one of the scene’s most promising voices." - Pitchfork
