Luke Seabright

I'm a passionate jazz nerd, originally from the UK but currently living in Toulouse, France. My background is in physics and information technologies, and today I work as a writer and musician.

About Me

Jazz has been my greatest passion since I turned 11 and decided to learn the saxophone. Shortly after, I saw my first jazz concert, Wayne Shorter's quartet at the Halle aux Grains in Toulouse. Ever since then, I've tried to absorb the jazz scene wherever I've lived and visited. In particular, I have been a regular volunteer at the Marciac jazz festival in southern France, where I have been fortunate enough to see many of the leading artists in the genre. I studied physics and worked in London for a while as a IT engineer. London was a wonderful city to indulge in my passion, as the musical and cultural scene there is so incredibly diverse. In particular, it was during my time there that I got introduced to free improv, and I got to see and engage with many of the leaders of the UK scene by frequenting such iconic venues as the Vortex and Cafe Oto. I am currently based in Toulouse and am focused on music, as a journalist and a performer. I mainly play alto and tenor saxophone, but dabble in the piano and guitar. I contribute to several online jazz related platforms, writing about jazz history and interviewing artists.
