One of the UK’s most exciting saxophonists, vocalists and composers, Kim Cypher heads to Black Mountain Jazz with her highly popular ‘Love Kim x’ album tour. This is the perfect opportunity to hear tracks from Kim’s latest album plus new music performed ‘live’ with her band of top UK musicians.
Inspired by the funkier side of jazz and having studied alongside US saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Andy Sheppard, Kim’s style of performance is best described as ‘funky saxophonist meets 1940′s jazz singer’.
Kim performs an eclectic mix of music spanning many genres with a quirky, jazzy twist together with her own original material, all packaged up in a captivating performance and warm stage presence.
Kim’s 2nd album ‘Love Kim x’ is a collection of inspired original music and quirky takes on some well-known classics all performed with great verve and style and listed in the Top 10 UK CD’s for 2019 by online Jazz Magazine Bebop Spoken Here.
“A bright, passionate performing light on the UK Jazz scene playing an enjoyable mix of Jazz, from classics through to real funky interpretations of modern mainstream music.” – Jazz In Europe Editor.
Kim’s highly successful debut album tour included sell-out shows across the UK in 2017/18 including top London jazz clubs and some great venues and festivals.
Kim’s new album tour kicked off with a sell-out show on 8th February 2019 with special guest Pee Wee Ellis. Kim’s varied and accessible selection of music together with her warmth on stage and versatility as a saxophonist, vocalist and all-round performer is firmly cementing her place on the jazz scene with her growing popularity as an artist.
The supporting band line up for this special night is quite simply outstanding and features some of the most highly regarded and experienced musicians in the UK:
- Chris Cobbson – Guitar
- John-Paul Gard – Keys
- Mike Green – Double Bass
- Mike Cypher – Drums
With a phenomenal line up like this performing a fabulous selection of music, this is without doubt a night not to be missed!
