Description

Combining jazz with inner-city London, West African and Caribbean influenced groove, SEED Ensemble celebrates the vibrant and distinctive diversity that has influenced British culture over the centuries.

Led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi, SEED’s debut album Driftglass, released by Jazz re:freshed, is nominated for the Mercury Prize 2019.

Projecting this new musical vision is a 10-piece line-up featuring young musicians essential to the modern identity of British jazz, including tuba player Theon Cross, trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey, tenor saxophonist Chelsea Carmichael and one of London’s leading guitarists, Shirley Tetteh.

Across ‘Driftglass’, Kinoshi embraces styles both past and present to create something that we can call modern. Band members cut across race and gender with original compositions inspired by the social issues of our times.

Adopter: Supported by Natalie Hughes in memory of Jeff Hughes
