Exodus to Jazz continues to kick out the jazz with Seamus Blake on October 17th

A long-time member of the Mingus Big Band, Blake has performed or recorded with artists such as John Scofield, Bill Stewart, Kevin Hays, Victor Lewis, Brad Meldau, Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano, Jane Monheit, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Franco Ambrosetti, Billy Drummond and Darrell Grant among others. Blake has released five albums on Criss Cross Records since 1993, his most recent being 2007's Way Out Willy
