Chocolate Factory 2 Coburg Road, Wood Green,
Featuring the lyrical improvising voice of Amy Baldwin, Simon Purcell’s original compositions and reimagined standards, this collaborative ensemble is a three-way musical affair complemented by the percussive invention of Jon Scott. KAIYO the ocean, constantly reforming, waves, currents, tides and flow.
Appearing in both duo as KAIYO 2 (Amy and Simon) and trio as KAIYO 3 (with Jon Scott), these London-based musicians are drawn to the interactive potential of the jazz piano trio, taking inspiration from some of the great facilitators of group improvisation in jazz, Bill Evans, Jimmy Guiffre and Miles Davis.
Amy Baldwin, DOUBLE BASS.
A dynamic and interactive soloist, Amy has accompanied many of Britain’s most famous artists including Kenny Wheeler, Bobby Wellins, Liane Carroll, Anita Wardell, Martin Speake, Tina May, Stan Robinson, Dierdre Cartwright, Irene Serra and Tracey Mendham.
Simon Purcell, PIANO
Internationally acclaimed pianist and educator Simon Purcell came to prominence during the UK Jazz boom of the 1980s through his band ‘Jazz Train’ (with Martin Speake, Cleveland Watkiss et al), a quartet with Julian Arguelles and numerous appearances with visiting American artists (such as Red Rodney, Kenny Wheeler, Eddie Henderson, Jean Toussaint, Valerie Ponomarev, Dale Barlow, Conrad Erwig) at London's Bass Clef Club and occasional weeks at Ronnie Scott's.
