Kit Downes is critically regarded as one of the UK’s outstanding jazz talents and this latest recording ‘Obsidian’, a unique collection sounds and colours, could have only been made by an improviser of subtle sensibilities. Some of Downes’ earliest musical experiences were as a church organist and in recent years he has been exploring it’s sonic possibilities and idiosyncrasies, in improvisations and compositions both melodic and textural.
Downes is bringing a new and highly personal approach to an instrument steeped in history and tradition - a tradition that he loves but is seeking to explore and abstract.

"Enticingly strange and wonderful sounds, so odd you can hardly believe it’s an organ making them.. a lightening musical intelligence” Telegraph
“It testifies to his world-class stature” Guardian
“One of the finest pianists of his generation” Jazzwise
“Kit Downes showed his considerable chops and flowing imagination as a pipe organist” Downbeat Magazine
"A richly layered, moving soundscape with regular dark, whispering undercurrents - building with unbelievable tension" All About Jazz
"Downes teases sounds from the great organ, eliciting a powerful effervescence from the pipes - an exceptional soloist" Wormser Zeitung
