SEED Ensemble – Driftglass
- Jazz Re:freshed
- UK - Original
Emerging London-based collective SEED Ensemble are pleased to announce the release of their long-awaited debut album 'Driftglass'
Formed in 2016, SEED Ensemble is a ten-piece project led by composer, arranger and alto saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi. Already a giant on the UK jazz scene, she's known for her work with jazz septet Nerija (Parliamentary Jazz Award Winners 2017 Best Newomer) and afrobeat jazz group Kokoroko
Combinng jazz with inner-city London, West African and Caribbean influenced groove, Cassie's Kinoshi's SEED Enesmble explores a blend of genres through both original compositions and arrangements
Collaborators on this project include Theon Cross (tuba), Sheila Mauric-Grey (trumpet), Chelsea Charmichael (tenor saxophone) all brilliant up and coming young London jazz musicians and one of London's leading guitarists Shirley Tetteh
Compositions such as 'The Darkies' are a riposte to a resurgence of 1950's-style racism while 'WAKE (for Grenfell)' is dedicated to victims of a social schism
Of the project, Kinoshi says: 'Driftglass' takes it's name from a collection of short stories...by African-American sci-fi author Samuel R. Delaney [and] can be interprested as a beautiful metaphor for how fluid and intimate improvised music is.
