John Blake

Biography

Throughout his career, John Blake veered backwards and forwards between R&B-ish sets and much more adventurous dates. A nice if not excessively special violinist, the flexible Blake performed in a multitude of configurations. After advanced traditional study, he 1st gained acknowledgement for his early-’70s recordings with Archie Shepp. Through the following decade, Blake documented with McCoy Tyner, Wayne Newton, Cecil McBee, Jay Hoggard, and Grover Washington, Jr., touring thoroughly with Tyner and Washington. He produced some generally interesting, if varied, units for Gramavision within the 1980s (including a remarkable 1986 day with fellow violinists Michal Urbaniak and Didier Lockwood) and something Compact disc for Sunnyside in 1992, displaying a whole lot of potential. Striken with multiple myeloma, Blake passed away in August 2014 at age 67.
