With his highly regarded discography, unique compositions, and acclaimed performances in a variety of configurations, GRAMMY®-winning pianist Geoffrey Keezer commands the attention typically reserved for the living legends of jazz.
Keezer has sat atop the jazz world for decades, holding down the piano chair for Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers at age 18, and touring in the company of Ray Brown, Joshua Redman, Diana Krall, Art Famer, Benny Golson and Barbara Hendricks in his 20s. More recently he has toured with Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves, David Sanborn, Chris Botti, Sting, Joe Locke and Christian McBride; produced and arranged three GRAMMY®-nominated recordings with vocalist Denise Donatelli, and released a series of albums drawing influences from Hawaiian, Okinawan and Afro-Peruvian folk traditions.
An evening of music not to be missed!
“Mr. Keezer is the kind of straight-ahead piano player you wish for: multifaceted, responsive, constantly sifting through colors and shapes, bursting with a personal and sincere enthusiasm.” - The New York Times
“In the universe of piano players that I have been exposed to over the years, Geoffrey has proved himself to be not only a superb technician and improviser, but also above and beyond this, a composer and conceptualist who can maintain the overall line and the DNA of the song in everything he plays. A musician’s musician.” - Sting
