Ken Thomson is a staple of New York City’s contemporary music and jazz communities, and is widely regarded for his
ability to blend a rich variety of influences and styles into his own musical language while maintaining a voice
unmistakably his own. Embracing the combination of complexity in harmony, rhythm, and form while adding a punk-rock
aesthetic, Thomson has carved out a unique corner in today’s multifaceted musical world.
As a performer-composer bridging jazz and contemporary music, Thomson has released two albums with his group
Slow/Fast. The most recent of these, Settle, was praised by the New York Times for its “intricate long-form compositions,”
and garnered a five-star review in All About Jazz
