SEED Ensemble - Driftglass

Emerging London-based collective SEED Ensemble are pleased to announce the release of their long-awaited debut album 'Driftglass' released Feb 8th on the Jazz re:freshed label.

Formed in 2016, SEED Ensemble is a ten-piece project led by composer, arranger and alto saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi. Already a giant on the UK jazz scene, she's known for her work with jazz septet Nerija (Parliamentary Jazz Award Winners 2017 Best Newomer) and afrobeat jazz group Kokoroko. A BMus Hons Composition graduate from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance, she is currently Mercury Musical Developments' and Musical Theatre Network's most recent Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Scheme recipient.

Combinng jazz with inner-city London, West African and Caribbean influenced groove, Cassie's Kinoshi's SEED Enesmble explores a blend of genres through both original compositions and arrangements.

Collaborators on this project include Theon Cross (tuba), Sheila Mauric-Grey (trumpet), Chelsea Charmichael (tenor saxophone) all brilliant up and coming young London jazz musicians and one of London's leading guitarists Shirley Tetteh

Compositions such as 'The Darkies' are a riposte to a resurgence of 1950's-style racism while 'WAKE (for Grenfell)' is dedicated to victims of a social schism
