Geoffrey Keezer Trio with special guest Gillian Margot

Thursday, September 10

One Show at 7:30

The Geoffrey Keezer Trio is comprised of Geoffrey Keezer on piano, Richie Goods on bass and Alan Hall on drums.

With his highly regarded discography, unique compositions, and acclaimed performances in a variety of configurations, pianist Geoffrey Keezer commands the attention typically reserved for the living legends of jazz. Whether recording with jazzy chanteuses Diana Krall or Dianne Reeves, touring with trumpet king Chris Botti, or collaborating with pop icon Sting, sax legend Wayne Shorter, guitar wizard Jim Hall, star bassist Christian McBride or vibes master Joe Locke, Geoffrey "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.

Gillian Margot is the rarest sort of singer - the kind that makes people sit up and listen. She has an exquisite voice, a disarmingly wide range and a style that is deeply rooted in the tradition of the great jazz vocalists, yet she possesses a gift of storytelling and emotionally intelligent lyrical delivery that is refreshingly free of "jazz singer" clichés. Trained as a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and dancer, Ms. Margot feels equally at home in the musical worlds of jazz, R&B and pop, and commands a stage presence and confidence honed through years of performing for audiences worldwide.

Celebrate Thelonious Monk's Birthday with the Helen Sung Quintet

Saturday, October 10

One Show at 7:30

An award-winning classical pianist before jazz intervened "in the form of a Tommy Flanagan solo," Houston, TX, native Helen Sung went on to graduate from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance and win the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.

Since establishing herself in New York City, she has worked with such luminaries as Clark Terry, Ron Carter, Steve Turre, the legendary Wayne Shorter, and MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter; and, in addition to her own band, can currently be seen with fine ensembles including the Mingus Big Band & Dynasty Band, the T.S.Monk Group, and Terri Lyne Carrington's Grammy-winning Mosaic Project.

With five first-rate albums to her credit, Anthem For A New Day, is her debut on Concord Records. An exciting step forward in Sung's evolution, Anthem displays a modern artistry and music that swings with a funky intellect while seamlessly integrating her jazz &anp; classical worlds. A bright future is certainly in store for this exciting artist whom Wynton Marsalis named as one of his 'Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!'
