Late reminder: Troyka tonight

Rising star of the jazz keyboard Kit Downes, who recently played a superb Rush Hour Blues gig in Birmingham with his acoustic piano trio, returns to the city this evening, this time plugged in as organist with the jazz/prog trio Troyka.

Completing the line-up is Chris Montague on guitar with Joshua Blackmore on drums.

One review called them “King Crimson for the i-Pod generation” which neatly refers to their occasional prog-rock leanings. There is a lot of complex post-jazz harmony in there too.

The band is said to be very powerful live, so they should create quite a stir in the Rainbow Courtyard from 9pm. Entry is £4 on the door and this a Jazz Club event from Birmingham Jazz. More info on the gig here and my review of their album here
