Kit Downes Quintet: Kit Downes + Calum Gourlay
At once both dark and detailed, colourfull and chaotic, this Quintet is the new project from UK pianist and composer Kit Downes. It features the talents of Calum Gourlay, James Maddren, Lucy Railton and James Allsopp. Musically placed between an abandoned pirate ship and an unmanned pet-shop (lopsided blues and speedy corners), the band have enjoyed many trips to Europe and beyond (such as Jazz Festivals in London, Trondheim, Tel Aviv and Bremen Jazzahead) and are set to release an album in 2012 (on the Basho label).
