KIM Trio is led by tenor saxophonist Helena Kay (Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year 2015), and features Ferg Ireland (Kansas Smittys) on double bass and David Ingamells (Yamaha Jazz Scholarship 2013) on drums. The trio have performed at the London Jazz Festival, Glasgow Jazz Festival, played live on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Now, as well as various other gigs in London and the UK. Inspired by greats such as Sonny Rollins and Antonio Carlos Jobim, and by contemporary names like Melissa Aldana and Larry Goldings, the trio enjoy playing a varied mixture of Helena’s originals and tunes from the jazz canon.
‘Bobby Wellins would have heard a kindred spirit in the unhurried gracefulness of Kay’s improvising… the marvellously self-possessed Kay’s sheer musicality, sure tone and beautifully expressed flow of ideas that stood out above all in a literally winning performance.‘ Rob Adams
