Event description

Description

This is an opportunity to hear selections from TK Blue's latest album The Rhythm Continues dedicated to Dr. Randy Weston. This is TK's 12th CD just released November 1st on JAJA records.

“Blue’s voice on alto is highly distinctive. Whether on his main horn, soprano, or flute, he inflects everything he plays with ebullience” – James Hale / Downbeat

Regarding his last album

"T.K. Blue exudes armloads of dexterity and guileless charm on his latest album, AMOUR. Its 11 tracks, a nice balance of originals and covers, overflow with evidence of a craftsman so in love with his work that it doesn’t even feel like work. " -4 Star Review by: Brian Zimmerman Downbeat September 2017
