About

Grammy-nominated pianist Geoffrey Keezer got his start early, playing in jazz clubs as a teenager, holding down the piano chair for Art Blakey at age 18. Now in his 40s, he's known for a singular style of intellectually abstract lyricism woven over exotically complex rhythms and harmonies, making him one of the most sought-after artists on the modern jazz scene. Keezer is joined by the exquisite Canadian vocalist Gillian Margot. A student of Oscar Peterson and Freddy Cole, she has a voice that is reminiscent of Nina Simone and Oleta Adams. She and Keezer deliver music from her latest recording, Black Butterfly.


Performance Timing: 75 minutes, with no intermission.
