Kit Downes Trio
The young pianist/organist Kit Downes has attracted a compelling amount of critical praise since first coming to prominence on the British jazz scene with the band Empirical. Arguably the most feted young musician since Gwilym Simcock Downes is in constant demand and has already appeared as a sideman with an impressive list of leading musicians including drummer Clark Tracey. Besides his current piano trio he also a regular member of Troyka and James Allsopp’s Golden Age Of Steam, appearing on organ with both of these bands.
"A hugely promising record that reveals fresh angles with each listening"
"An impressive document that demonstrates a considerable step forward."
