Music - Jazz, Fri 10 Feb 2017


Wakefield Sports Club (College Grove),
Eastmoor Road,


New York based saxophonist/composer Seamus Blake is recognized as one of the finest exponents of contemporary jazz. His music is known for its sophistication, bold improvisations and “sheer swagger". He has been a feature on the New York scene for 20 years, especially as a featured soloist with the Mingus Big Band. In February 2002, Seamus took first place in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition in Washington D. C. As the winner, he performed with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock.
He has also played and recorded with John Scofield, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Dave Douglas in addition to 16 CDs under his own name and 70 others as side-man. It is a coup for this project, co-organised by Apollo Jazz and Norvol Jazz, to have made it possible for him to visit the North of England for exclusive appearances such as this.
