Fiona's Comments

Kit Downes is one of the most exciting names on the UK jazz scene. In addition to the ensembles mentioned above, he's also a member of the genre-blending Threads Orchestra, an ensemble featured previously on the AAJ dotd, and one of my favorites over the last two years. This track displays Downes' talent for culling evocative sounds from subtle tunes. Great stuff.

About the Album

Quiet Tiger is the second album from BBC Award-winning, 24 year old pianist/composer, Kit Downes and the follow-up to his Mercury Prize nominated debut album Golden. A nomination that announced to a wider audience, what the jazz world already knew, that Downes is one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation. A gifted composer and sparkling improviser, who whether playing with the bands Neon, Troyka and Golden Age Of Steam or leading his own lauded trio, brings an under-stated verve and earthy brilliance to the music. Features: Kit Downes (piano), Calum Gourlay (bass), and drummer James Maddren as well as special guests Adrien Dennefeld on cello and James Allsopp on tenor saxophone and bass-clarinet.
