The Wind Up with James Kitchman

Sundays at Kansas Smittys are the perfect way to wind down from a busy weekend, while getting recharged for the week ahead.

Two compelling improvisers emerging from London's jazz scene, James Kitchman (UK) & Sylvia Schmidt (DE) are an accomplished guitar-vocal duo. Originally drawn together by the richness and variety of the jazz tradition, they have recently explored more diverse sources of inspiration, including Anglo-American folk ballads of the Appalachian mountains. Their sound embraces the dynamic tension between forces of preservation and transformation, creating a space in which the haunting beauty of nostalgia and irresistibility of change intersect.
