Matt Clohesy – db Scott Kinsey – keyb Jordan Perlson – dr Seamus Blake – sax

Seamus Blake, domiciled in New York, is deemed as one of the best interpreter of the contemporary jazz. His music is known for sophisticated and bold improvisations. John Scofield who hired Seamus for the project “Quiet Band” calls him “Incredible, total saxophonist”.

Blake was born in 1970 in England, but was raised in Vancouver, Canada. As a 21-year-old student of the prestigious Bostonian Berklee College (where he studied with Kuba Stankiewicz), he was invited to record a piece with the drums legend Victor Lewis. After graduation Seamus moved to New York, where he made an appearance on the local jazz scene. In 2002 he won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition in Washington, DC. This gave him the opportunity to perform with Wayne Shorterer and Herbie Hancock.

As a leader, Blake recorded 6 albums with his bands, beginning with The Call (1993). His bands comprised David Kikoski, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Larry Grenadier and Bill Stewart, just to name a few. The album Live in Italy (2009) was graded 4.5/5 in the prestigious music magazine Downbeat. In 2010 he was a guest of honor at the the International Saxophone Symposium, hosted by the United States Navy Band. The list of artists Blake has been working with goes is very long and comprise of such decent musicians as Scott Kinsey, Tal Wilkenfeld, Jane Monheit, Kenny Barron, Sam Yahel, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Wayne Krantz, Ingrid Jensen, Maria Schneider, Mark Turner, Brad Mehldau, Al Foster, Brian Blade, Jeremy Pelt and Jack DeJohnette, and many others. As a sideman he recorded 6 albums with Mingus Big Band. Recently he has been associated with the formation Antonio Sanchez & Migration. It is the first time he performs in Poland!

Review By Curt Bianchi, The Zawinul Legacy Band at Catalina Bar and Grill  

March 30th, 2014

After a little re-jiggering of travel arrangements, I managed to catch the March 12 performance of the Zawinul Legacy Band at Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood, California. The band played a strong set in front of an enthusiastic audience, starting off with “Gibralter” from the Weather Report album Black Market. From there, it was a nice sampling of Zawinul tunes from various points in his career, as can be seen by the set list. (The Peter Erskine appearance on the set list didn’t materialize.) Among the highlights were an extended synth solo by Scott Kinsey, a rap homage to Joe by Katisse Buckingham during “Cucumber Slumber,” and beautiful piece by Bobby Thomas played on an inverted pan drum.

It felt a bit like a reunion at Catalina, with Brian Risner (aka, “The Chief Meteorologist”) doing sound with Paul Erickson (one of the engineers on This Is This, and former Zawinul keyboard tech Jim Swanson and his son in the audience, as well as Joe’s own sons, Tony and Erich. The band did a great job staying faithful to Joe’s music while also putting their own stamp on it. Special kudos to Scott Kinsey for maintaining the spirit of Joe’s approach to synthesizers while forging his own voice. Well done all the way around.
