Full Bio:

Drawing influence from over one hundred years of jazz history, from Django Reinhardt to Ahmad Jamal, and the vivid musical landscapes of Debussy and even Brian Eno, British seven-piece and residents/owners of East London venue/bar of the same name, Kansas Smitty’s combine journeying with cinematic textures on new album 'Things Happened Here' via K7’s newly revived Ever Records imprint.

Led by American-Italian alto-saxophonist/clarinettist Giacomo Smith, and featuring a wide array of young and exciting British jazz talent, including pianist Joe Webb (Haley Tuck, Alaska Alaska), Will Cleasby on drums (Judi Jackson, Kurt Elling, Banger Factory) and bassist Ferg Ireland (Ashley Henry, Ruby Rushton), Kansas Smitty’s astutely bridge traditional and modern jazz forms in seamless and sublime fashion.

They previously sold out shows at Ronnie Scott’s and The Jazz Café, and appeared in numerous festivals including North Sea Jazz and Love Supreme, and Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Referring to the feeling one gets when walking into an old house, ancient temple, abandoned factory or any space once lived and familiar, now foreign and contrasting, 'Things Happened Here' is the culmination of years spent defining a sound steeped in jazz history, yet present and future-facing to the sounds of tomorrow.
