Now based in Paris, American born pianist Kirk Lightsey has worked and recorded with the very best of them. He is a highly polished, virtuosic and always architecturally minded player with a classy post bop sensibility. In the mid-sixties he became a sideman for both Chet Baker and Sonny Stitt, but it was his work with Dexter Gordon that brought him to the attention of a wider public. Accompanying Kirk are Steve Watts (bass) and Dave Wickins (drums and percussion).
Kirk Lightsey has recorded for many labels.
Sunnyside Records is only one of them.
