Mercury Prize Nominee with Augmented Trio

Kit Downes (piano) Calum Gourlay (bass) James Maddren (drums) James Allsopp (bass clarinet) Josh Arceleo (tenor sax) Adrien Dennefeld (cello)

Kit Downes is one of the most in demand young pianists on the UK scene, and is beginning to get the kind of enthusiastic attention Gwilym Simcock did on his emergence a few years before. His 2010 album Golden was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Backed by the subtle touches of bassist Calum Gourlay and drummer James Maddren, the trio is here expanded to form a new sextet performing original compositions.

Downes is more of a choosy, patient storyteller, and if one of his distinctive original themes only requires a handful of notes and a lot of spaces, he leaves it like that.
