The Artistry of ... Geoffrey Keezer

The Artistry Of ... Geoffrey Keezer

A recent tweet reads: I’m on an “augmented reality” kick. Anytime somebody writes a chord symbol, I play the 5th a half step higher. I think the wit and the expanse of expression says much about the piano player composer and educator. On purpose and without missing a beat I will say this about the music world of Keezer. He gets at the heart of the piano. That was the name of his 2013 Motema recording. It is how he plays.  Words describing the album include, on a mission to redefine solo jazz piano as a personal and interactive showcase of melody, energy and groove. Redefinition equals Geoffrey Keezer.
