Kim Cypher Quintet

£6.00 - £15.00

As London Jazz News commented when reviewing her album, Love Kim x, 'Saxophonist and singer Kim Cypher breaks through onto the national stage with this beguiling and accessible collection of originals and classics, performed with great verve and style.'

Kim has developed her own unique 'funky' style of saxophone playing, built upon influences by great players such as Gerald Albright, Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis, Andy Sheppard, Courtney Pine and Grover Washington.

Learning her craft from tutor (and James Brown/Van Morrison saxophonist) Pee Wee Ellis and Andy Sheppard, Kim’s vocal style has been influenced by the great Billie Holiday, together with a wide range of vocalists/performers, including Gunhild Carling, Imelda May, Caro Emerald and Liane Carroll.

With a performance style best described as 'funky saxophonist meets 1940s jazz singer’, Kim performs an eclectic mix of music spanning many genres with a quirky, jazzy twist together with her own original material, all packaged up in a captivating performance and warm stage presence.
