Cambridge Jazz Festival: SEED Ensemble
Sunday 17th November
8:45 pm – 10:15 pm
Formed in early 2016, Mercury Prize Nominees 2019, SEED Ensemble is a ten-piece band led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi.
The project presents a stellar line-up featuring some of London’s most up-and-coming young jazz musicians including tuba player Theon Cross and tenor saxophonist Chelsea Carmichael. Combining jazz with inner-city London, West African and Caribbean influenced groove, SEED explores a blend of genres through both original compositions and arrangements. Their debut release Driftglass (Jazz Re:freshed, 2019) features the track Afronaut (feat. XANA) which won the Ivors Academy Award 2018 (formerly known as BASCA, British Composer Award) for Jazz Composition for Large Ensemble.
This is a standing concert, though some unreserved seating will be available.
Reggae Kitchen will be serving outside between 5.30-9.30pm.
