"Bask in TK Blue's WARM EMBRACE"
Bask in TK Blue's Warm Embrace

Talib Kibwe "T. K." Blue's saxophone and flute work on 13 unforgettable tracks show why he enjoys success as a performer, composer, and Randy Weston's music director. Warm Embrace is the perfect blend of 5 covers, and 8 original tunes destined to become standards.
T. K. Blue mesmerizes listeners from downbeat to cut off. Just when you think you've been released from TK's Warm Embrace--title song of his latest CD--"Tides of Romance" washes gently over you with inventive flute and guitar melodies. The Portuguese classic, "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar" (It's you I've always loved) is a brilliant study in wind-string sonorities and heartfelt, parallel emotion.
Guitarist Russell Malone, once sideman for Jimmy Smith and others, puts raw freshness on "Tides" and "Requiem of a Loved 1"--a poignant tribute to renowned Ancestors. TK's all-star cast includes prolific pianist James Weidman--check out "Essence of U"; and bassist Essiet Okon Essiet--whose Nigerian roots complement TK's international exposure, evidenced by handiwork on "Dance of Passion" and "Goodbye is not 4-ever."
Paul Beaudry's smooth arco bass on "Once Loved" supports Quartette Indigo Strings: Akua Dixon--cello, Ina Paris--viola, violinists Chala Yancy and Patrisa Tomassini serve as perfect canvas for TK's indelible flute.
Winard Harper is the hard-bopping drum wizard from noted Harper Brothers band. Also present are Manila-native, guitarist Ron Jackson; Roland Guerrero, from TK's popular Latinbird (2011); and singer Alana Adderley, packing third-generation chops on "When Sunny gets blue."
Leading 10 CDs in as many years is a milestone few musicians reach; and for that T. K. Blue deserves ovations from Grammy, Billboard, and worldwide cash registers. Warm Embrace is a must-have for collectors of classic Jazz.
