A saxophonist with an earthy and expressive style, Ed Kainyek, originally from Sierra Leone, has long been an established and respected figure on the Manchester Jazz scene. Performing at numerous Jazz festivals up and down the country he has also advised on up and coming talent as a member of the Manchester Jazz Festival panel, and for many years has hosted countless jam sessions, showcasing newcomers to the Manchester jazz scene. One of the highlights of this time was an evening at the popular Mattand Phred’s Jazz Club in Manchester when his quartet was joined by several members of the world-renowned Wynton Marsalis Lincoln Centre Orchestra.
