Never miss another 'Kit Downes' show
"Kit Downes Mercury Prize nominated debut album Golden announced to a wider audience what the jazz world already knew; Downes is one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation. A gifted composer and sparkling improviser, who whether playing with bands Neon Quartet, Troyka and Golden Age Of Steam or leading his own lauded quintet, brings an understated verve and earthy brilliance to the music. Inspired by artists as diverse as Bill Frisell, Bartok, Skip James, Paul Bley and Bjork."
