All-Star Keezer Concert in La Jolla Tonight, May 9

TONIGHT: GEOFFREY KEEZER’S ALL-STAR CONCERT IN LA JOLLA

Geoffrey Keezer and his wife, fellow musician Susan Wulff (principal bassist for the San Diego Symphony) will both be performing tonight, May 9, at the Neurosciences Institute Auditorium in La Jolla.

Taking the stage with them will be former Lauryn Hill drummer Terreon Gully, bassist Bob Hurst (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno band), and sax symbol Ron Blake (Saturday Night Live band), as well as local guitar hero Peter Sprague.

Based in North Park, jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, in the 1970s, listening to and loving Weather Report and Return to Forever, long before he ever heard swing or bebop music. Eighteen years old in 1989, Art Blakey hired him as pianist for the Jazz Messengers, with whom he toured the world until Blakey died the following year.

Currently fronting the Geoffrey Keezer Trio, he was nominated for a 2010 Grammy award for Best Latin Jazz Album, for his album Aurea (which includes Sprague).

He was nominated again for a 2011 Grammy, for Best instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s), for his arrangement of “Don’t Explain” on Denise Donatelli’s album When Lights Are Low, which Keezer’s wife also performs on.

Another ensemble, the Geoffrey Keezer-Peter Sprague Band, released its debut album Mill Creek Road in January 2011. In performance, the group often features Los Angeles–based bassist Hamilton Price and San Diego drummer Duncan Moore, as well as Zach Harmon on tablas and Erica Ochoa on violin.

Keezer and Sprague also play together with singer Dianne Reeves, in her touring band.
