Having been influenced - both personally and historically - by jazz's elders, saxophonist Talib Kibwe shows a good deal of sagacity himself in bringing fresh perspectives to music steeped in tradition. With a remarkable ensemble of sidemen, he embarks on a musical journey that not only cuts across time but cultures too... There is a depth of feeling here that runs through it all that is uniquely T.K. Blue's" ~Steve Jones, USA Today
Like Sonny Rollins, T.K. Blue (a k a Talib Kibwe) is an American saxophonist with West Indian parents, and like Rollins, Blue has allowed his island heritage to flavor his post-bop jazz albums.. Blue has impressed critics and fellow musicians with his previous solo albums and his work with Abdullah Ibrahim and Randy Weston. -Geoffrey Himes, The Washington Post, T.K. Blue's saxophone, flute, and marimba playing is enhanced by their freedom of expression with the subtleties and nuances of the songs clearly explored.. When listened to in the context of the artist's emotional, spiritual, and musical maturation. ~Paula Edelstein, All Music Guide,
In every context, Kibwe (T.K. Blue) asserts himself as one of the brightest talents in jazz today." ~Geoffrey Himes, The Washington Post
