BBC Jazz Award-winning pianist Kit Downes performs with his acoustic piano trio. A rapidly-rising star on the UK jazz scene, Downes is an accomplished composer and virtuoso improvisor. Inspired by a wide range of influences, ranging from Béla Bartόk to Keith Jarrett to Rufus Wainwright, the trio endeavours to both celebrate the classic piano trio tradition as well as develop it. The trio has performed at the British, London, Glasgow and Cheltenham jazz festivals. They released their first album on Basho Records in 2009
