Geoffrey Keezer Trio featuring Gillian Margot
The School of Music and A Place for Jazz present the Geoffrey Keezer Trio featuring Gillian Margot. Tickets: $20 per person.
$20, tickets can be purchased at A Place for Jazz.
Geoff Keezer was only 17 when he became the last pianist in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers (1988-1990), a perfect gig for the talented hard bop musician who fit right in with the tradition of Horace Silver, Bobby Timmons, Cedar Walton, James Williams and Benny Green.
He’s been recording in recent years with the exquisite vocalist Gillian Margot, whose
smokey contralto and personal interpretive talents perfectly match Geoffrey, bassist
Hannah Marks and drummer Billy Kilson. This is a magical collaboration.
