Geoffrey Keezer

Geoffrey Keezer

Two-time Grammy® Award nominee, pianist and composer Geoffrey Keezer has worked with a myriad of jazz luminaries. As a member of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers at age 18 and touring in the company of Joshua Redman, Christian McBride, Benny Golson, and Ray Brown in his 20s, Keezer is known as a superb technician and improviser. Barely into his 40s, Keezer has become one of the most sought-after artists on the modern jazz scene.  His solo piano performance will be in support of his latest solo album, Heart of the Piano, songs by Peter Gabriel, Eva Cassidy, Rush, KT Tunstall, and Alanis Morissette, among others.

“…has more than enough virtuosity and sheer musical wit and intelligence
to weave all of his apparently disparate strands of influence into an original
and compelling whole.” – Time Magazine
