Musician

Kevin Sun

Born:

Kevin Sun (b. 1991) is a saxophonist, improvisor, composer, and writer. Sun’s primary musical vehicle is “Great on Paper” (a.k.a. GOP), which features a typical jazz quartet configuration with a distinctly atypical bent towards the avant-garde and the folkloric. As per its official biography, GOP “taps into the jazz tradition without getting too ideological or self-conscious about it,” and had its premiere performance at Jordan Hall in Boston in April 2014. Aside from performing with GOP, Sun has shared the stage with artists such as Vijay Iyer, James Moody, Kenny Burrell, Dave Liebman, and Rich Perry, among others, and has performed at venues such as Smalls Jazz Club (NYC), Sunside Jazz Club (Paris), Symphony Space (NYC), and Carnegie Hall (NYC)
