Seamus Blake & Dennis Adu Big Band
Caribbean Club (Kyiv, 4, vul. Symona Petliury)
When his mother introduced him to the world of jazz, he fell in love with it at first sight. The music journey of Seamus Blake started in London where he was born and Vancouver where he grew up. New York became the home and professional hub where he met well-known American jazzmen, including Victor Lewis, Franco Ambrosetti and Darrell Grant. In addition to that, Blake's portfolio includes playing with the brilliant Mingus Big Band, victory in the Thelonius Monk Jazz Competition in Washington and 16 records.
