Helena Kay’s KIM Trio
KIM Trio is led by tenor saxophonist Helena Kay (Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year 2015), and features Misha Mullov-Abbado (Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize 2014, Dankworth Prize 2014) on double bass and David Ingamells (Yamaha Jazz Scholarship 2013) on drums. The trio performed at the Glasgow Jazz Festival in the summer of 2016 and played live on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Now for the opening night of the London Jazz Festival, as well as another gig in the Festival on the Barbican Freestage. Inspired by greats such as Sonny Rollins and Antonio Carlos Jobim, and by contemporary names like Melissa Aldana and Larry Goldings, the trio enjoy performing a varied mixture of Helena’s originals and tunes from the jazz canon.

Big Bad Wolf
Big Bad Wolf is a London based band featuring washy guitars, ambient vocals, brassy hooks and deep grooves. This distinctive sound arises largely from the band’s consistently egalitarian process of group composition, where all 4 members are present from conception to completion of each song. Starting each writing session by recording an open-ended group improvisation, they then listen back, pick out the best ideas and then develop them into intricate and concise pieces of music.
“I really like the kind of combination of lazy trombone and darting guitar riffs” – Jez Nelson, BBC radio 3 (Jazz on 3)
ft. Owen Dawson (trombone), Rob Luft (guitar), Michael De Souza (guitar) and Jay Davis (drums)
