Saxophonist and bandleader TK Blue performs with his quartet - featuring Benito Gonzales on piano, Belden Bullock on bass, and McClenty Hunter on drums- at The Uptown Lounge at Minton's Playhouse on Saturday, April 25, 2009. The show begins at 9:00 p.m. with a $10 cover charge.

Saxophonist, flautist, bandleader, and composer TK Blue's career in jazz began with early tenures performing with artists ranging from Don Cherry to Nadi Qamar to Abdullah Ibrahim. TK continued his development and work performing and living in Paris while making frequent visits to Africa to study music. While living in Paris, TK forged a musical relationship with Randy Weston that has continued to this day. TK has since returned to the United States and recorded a number of solo albums, notably for Arkadia Records, leading his group The TK Blue Quartet.

TK's most recent album, Follow the North Star, features venerable jazz artists including Steve Turre and Onaje Allan Gumbs. To date, the album has received strong reviews from press, with Jazz Improv describing it as “an outstanding work of musical art."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
