T.K. Blue (Talib Kibwe Blue) has assembled some the brightest stars in Jazz (Stefon Harris, Randy Brecker, Eric Reed, Lonnie Plaxico, Joanne Brackeen, Jeff "Tain" Watts) to create a scintillating display of musicianship on his album, T.K. Blue: Eyes of the Elders (also available on CD). Taking inspiration from the spirit of those who preceded him, the album covers the spectrum of Jazz, using the kalimba and marimba to recall it’s African roots, traveling up the Nile, over to Brazil, beginning with a nod to Charlie Parker, and ending with an intense, soul-stirring version of John Coltrane’s Wise One.

"One of the brightest talents in Jazz today" - Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post

 

“Eyes of The Elders by saxophonist T.K. Blue is an accessible and charming album made all the more inviting by Blue's instrumental prowess. His saxophone talks in warm tones that speak of an intense love of the art of improvisation, not forcing listeners to pay attention but rather beckoning them with subtle tenderness.”                                        - Steve Graybow, Billboard

 

 

T.K. Blue: Eyes of the Elders gathers an all-star ensemble (that spans 3 Jazz generations) under Blue’s leadership to create a fascinating tribute to music’s ‘Elders’ who helped create the shape and scope of Jazz today. Though the album is undoubtedly Jazz music, TK Blue travels around the globe and through the ancestral music of generations past to create a thoughtful and inventive album that fuses the ancient with his contemporary vision, culminating in a modern World Jazz album that reflects his diverse musical and cultural heritage.
