Keith Brown Trio: Top Flight Jazz Piano
August 12 from 7:30-9:30pm
Pianist Keith Brown has made a strong impact on our audiences with stellar performances a few years ago. His most recent album, “African Ripples”, as well as his previous release “The Journey”, have both received rave reviews from press as well as musicians. Paris Move states “At a time when Randy Weston, McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea have successively disappeared, this new ivory prodigy comes at the right time to take up the torch with enthusiasm, respect and determination.” Composer/arranger Maria Schneider says “he just shook me with his deep artistry. I am so excited about this very special musician.” That Keith is a son of Donald Brown—a former stalwart of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers’’—is relevant only as a point of interest. Keith is a stellar musician and very much his own man. Keith cut his teeth in Knoxville’s jazz scene, and he’s now seen regularly in the esteemed venues of NYC.
