T.K. Blue

T.K. Blue CDs and Downloads at VIEW.com     T.K. Blue, also known as Talib Kibwe, was born in New York City of a Trinidadian mother and Jamaican father. T.K. began playing music at the age of 8 years old on trumpet. He took lessons from Billy Mitchell, the legendary tenor saxophonist with Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie, eventually pursuing music as a career after receiving a full academic scholarship to New York University.
     T.K. met the great pianist and composer Randy Weston during his stint with Abdullah Ibrahim. He began working with Mr. Weston in 1980. Randy Weston was living in France at that time.
     After moving to Paris in 1981, T.K. re-established his working relationship with Randy, and has since become his musical director. This union has lasted 24 years and has lead to the fruition of countless tours, recordings, concerts, radio and television appearances.
     In 1998, T.K. began a long term relationship with the New York based Arkadia Jazz label, with a third CD of ballads about to be released featuring Grammy nominated vibraphonist Stefon Harris. Arkadias founder Bob Karcy comments; T.K. is a major talent in both his playing and compositional ideas. Im impressed by the lyricism in his soloing even when hes playing at a very high energy. I think he has a unique and very contemporary sound that both comes from the past and looks to the future".
