Two-time Grammy nominated jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer plays live from his album, “Heart of the Piano.”
We have been living in the age of pop and rock for too long now. It can easily be seen in a "jazz" pianist's choice of rock song (by Peter Gabriel) for performance, and here Keezer plays the piano like a rock star plays his guitar… Where is the grace and subtlety of a Bill Evans or a Keith Jarrett? Pretty much gone with the Great American Songbook... If push comes to shove I'll even take the "mushy cocktail" stuff…
