One of the UK’s most exciting female saxophonists, vocalists and composers, Kim Cypher, brings her brand new ‘Love Kim x’ album tour to Annie’s Jazz Club. With her killer tour band featuring some of the UK’s finest musicians, this promises to be a fabulous night to remember!
Inspired by the funkier side of jazz and having studied alongside US saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, 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 has performed in the UK and New York alongside some of the finest jazz musicians including David Newton (13 times winner of best pianist in The British Jazz Awards), Clive Morton (long time sideman to Frank Sinatra and Jamie Cullum’s ex-tutor), Liane Carroll, Andy Sheppard, New York guitarist B.D. Lenz, cabaret star Anita Harris, Alex Steele, Remi Harris, Ian Bateman with regular band personnel including highly acclaimed musicians Chris Cobbson, Mike Green and husband Mike Cypher. The band line up for this special night is quite simply outstanding and features some of the most highly regarded musicians on the UK jazz scene.
Following her highly successful debut album (‘Make Believe’) tour which included sell-out shows across the UK, Kim has a series of prestigious jazz venues lined up for her exciting 2019 tour showcasing tracks from her new album.
