Jazzbird Nights: Kevin Sun Trio

September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday, September 20th, at 7:00pm, Jazzbird welcomes the Kevin Sun Trio! Featured artists include Kevin Sun– Saxophone, Walter StinsonBass, and Kayvon Gordon– Drums.

Kevin Sun is a saxophonist and composer living in New York City. His music has been called “…intense, harmonically virtuosic and compositionally complex” by DownBeat Magazine, and he has released six albums as a leader. Sun has also released five albums with the cooperative bands Mute, Earprint, and Great On Paper, and he appears on recordings led by Adam O’Farrill, Jacob Garchik, Juanma Trujillo, Dana Saul, and Xiongguan Zhang, among others. In addition to performing in the U.S., Sun has performed extensively in China and previously served as the Artistic Director of the Blue Note China Jazz Orchestra from 2018 until 2020, leading performances of the BNCJO at the Blue Note Beijing with guest artists such as Rudresh Mahanthappa, Kris Davis, and Ingrid Jensen. He performs every Tuesday at Lowlands Bar in Brooklyn, where he has been in residence since September 2021 with support from Keyed Up!, a program of the nonprofit organization Jazz Generation. In 2021, Sun was a Finalist for the Jerome Hill Foundation Artist Fellowship, and he plays VENN reeds by D’Addario exclusively.

Sun’s trio, with bassist Walter Stinson (Adam O’Farrill’s Stranger Days, Onyx Collective) and drummer Kayvon Gordon (Sullivan Fortner Trio), has performed extensively throughout Sun’s residency at Lowlands Bar. They will be performing new music from an upcoming live album recorded at Lowlands while extending the kinetic improvisational approach from Sun’s most recent trio release, The Fate of the Tenor.
