T.K. Blue – Harlem Safe House Jazz Parlor

T.K.Blue 2T.K. Blue began his life in music by playing trumpet from ages 8 to 10, then switching to drums for a year. After a hiatus, at age 17 he dedicated himself to music by learning flute. While attending New York University Blue threw himself headlong into music, concentrating on the saxophone. After performing and traveling extensively with Abdullah Ibrahim, T.K. moved to Paris where he recorded Egyptian Oasis, his first record as a leader, which sparked State Department tours to some 20 countries in Africa. Back in the USA since 1990, T.K. has worked constantly, in a wide range of styles and situations.
