Join us for an evening of outstanding music in this ex-convent in Blackheath which will be converted into a fabulous candlelit jazz club starring Peter Fraize and Terry Seabrook.
U.S. saxophonist Peter Fraize and U.K. keyboardist Terry Seabrook first teamed up in the summer of 2016 when they brought their energetic soulful update of the classic Hammond organ group to venues in the Sussex culminating in a performance at the Love Supreme Festival. They are reuniting for a UK tour in July 2018.
Peter is a distinct voice as both a saxophonist and composer, known for his impassioned playing, and intricate melodic writing. His music draws from deep within the jazz tradition, modern rock and pop, and world music. He has led numerous groups over the years. Peter is a graduate of the Netherlands Royal Conservatory, and director of Jazz Studies at George Washington University since 1997 where he lives. He has also performed in Peru, Japan and Europe.
Terry is well known as the leader/pianist of Milestones and the top UK Latin-Jazz Band Cubana Bop (which has appeared at previous Ealing Jazz Festivals). After studying at Sussex University and Eastman School of Music in NY he began touring Europe and the Middle East with US Jazz singer Joe Lee Wilson. He has composed for his bands, TV shows and the Associated Board’s Jazz Exams.
