Ami Oprenova & Kim Cypher

October 7, 2021

Music 7.30pm (Doors open at 7:00 pm)

Welcome back to jazz at Smokey Joe’s Jazz Club!

Smokey Joe’s is delighted to welcome Cheltenham’s very own Kim Cypher together with her quartet featuring top UK jazz musicians. Fresh from her sell-out debut at world renowned Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, with two highly acclaimed albums including Top 10 rated album ‘Love Kim x’ under her belt plus a recent music video ‘Crazy Times’ declared “BEST music video 2020” by US Music Interview Magazine, Kim has firmly secured her position on the UK jazz scene as one of the UK’s most exciting and popular saxophonists, vocalists and composers. Having trained with legendary US saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and UK jazz saxophonist Andy Sheppard, Kim’s style of performance is best described as ‘funky saxophonist meets 1940’s jazz singer’.

Bulgarian jazz vocalist, band leader and composer Ami Oprenova heads to the UK for a long-awaited tour ahead of her 3rd album release ‘Precious Days’ on 1st October. Ami has toured across Europe with ensemble ‘Coco ‘n’ the Fellas’ and is a popular artist on the UK jazz circuit. Having trained with some of the very best jazz vocalists including Cyrille Aimée, Liane Carroll and Anita Wardell, Ami has very much established herself as an artist full of lyrical melodies, harmonic language and versatile rhythms, influenced by Gypsy Swing, Blues & Bebop.

Tonight these two outstanding artists come together for the first time to perform a great set of jazz, latin, blues and funky grooves, celebrating great music and good times in the unique surroundings of Smokey Joe’s.
