Family Band is a ‘chordless quartet’ and a jazz ensemble of equals where there is no leader. All members compose works and the group was founded in 2015. Their 2023 album received critical acclaim “an extraordinary vibrancy that feels like it blows through the last seventy years of jazz history.” Kim originated in Fife and is one of the most prolific personalities and activists in the UK jazz scene.
