James Kitchman and Bruno Heinen
25th September 2022
Musical synergy was evident from the first two notes of Thelonious Monk’s ‘Bemsha Swing’ that were played by guitarist James Kitchman and pianist Bruno Heinen without any count-in, prior discussion, or eye contact. This was the opening night of a monthly residency held in one of London’s subterranean jazz clubs back in 2017. The duo has since developed an improvisational language in-common, taking influence from the chronology of great guitar/piano duos in jazz: Jim Hall and Bill Evans; through to Fred Hersch and Julian Lage. Their debut album ‘Rain Shadows’ – a carefully balanced brew of original compositions and improvisations is due for release in 2022.

Free entry with retiring collection.
