Terry Seabrook is well known as the leader/pianist of the top UK Latin Jazz Band Cubana Bop as well as Milestones (with Alan Barnes, Martin Shaw and Spike Wells). He studied music at Sussex University and jazz at Eastman School of Music in NY. From 1985 he toured Europe and the Middle East with US Jazz singer Joe Lee Wilson. He also composes, and has contributed pieces to the AB Jazz Grades and the Trinity- Rock School syllabus.
The Quintet will be performing Music by the Jazz Saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter
as well as original music inspired by Shorter, by Terry Seabrook.
This band follows on from Milestones (which focused on the music of Miles Davis) and in this new quintet we explore the music of one of Miles most important sidemen, the saxophonist Wayne Shorter. He was a prolific composer for all of the bands in which he played: Art Blakey’s Messengers, The Miles Davis Quintet, Weather Report, plus those bands which he led. Selecting from his catalogue has been hard because there is so much great and original music that Shorter has written.
We also play some new music inspired by Wayne Shorter in the form of A Shorter Suite by Terry Seabrook
