"Kyle Shepherd, together with Shane Cooper on double bass and drummer Jonno Sweetman, creating music of subtle, yet tremendous power. Though the technique of all three is undeniable, this is no antiseptic chopsfest: it is music of genuine passion, meditative and stately, but always emotionally engaged. It has groove at its very core, with hummable, stripped back melodies on top, and not just in the 'head' sections that traditionally top and tail jazz arrangements" -- Marcus O'Dair | The Arts Desk, United Kingdom. Shepherd recently launched his 3rd album "South African History!" to critical acclaim. His two previous albums, "fineART" and "A Portrait of Home", attracted South African Music Award nominations and drew recognition worldwide from respected jazz critics and discerning music listeners alike. Shepherd has performed in Japan, Holland, Belgium, France, the Bird's Eye Jazz Club (Switzerland), the Jazz Festival (Denmark) as well as at home in South Africa at The Cape Town International Jazz and Joy of Jazz Festivals. The Kyle Shepherd Trio is set to perform in China and Switzerland later this year.
