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. They will be releasing their debut album Moon Palace on Ubuntu Music in December 2018.
