Kirk Lightsey with special guests Jean Toussaint, Paul Zauner

After two sold out nights in March, are delighted to welcome back iconic pianist Kirk Lightsey, playing better than ever at 80 years young! He renews his partnership with saxophonist Jean Toussaint, former Jazz Messenger; and Austrian trombonist Paul Zauner, collaborator with many ranging from Gregory Porter through to Dave Liebman and David Murray.

Lightsey is one of the last of the great Detroit-born musicians, a heritage that included Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, he brings the quality and style of the Village Vanguard to the Vortex.

The rest of the band is Kirk’s preferred London partnership: Steve Watts (bass), Dave Wickens (drums)
