WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Kit Downes' debut album, Golden, was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize and announced to a wider audience what the jazz world already knew: that Downes is one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation. A gifted composer and sparkling improviser, he brings an under-stated verve and earthy brilliance to the music. Inspired by artists as diverse as Bartok and Bjork, his compositions have a lyrical, story-telling quality that draw the listener in. We're looking forward to another inspirational visit.
