Pianist Keith Saunders’ formative years in jazz happened in Los Angeles, and then came a quarter century making up Keith’s New York years, notably centered around the New York HardBop Quintet, an outfit he co-led which had an eight year run, touring extensively and recording four cds, two of them with Rudy Van Gelder at the controls, one with the great Mickey Roker on the drums. When not with the quintet, he was working with top musicians including Richie Cole, Frank Wess and Hank Crawford. In his work, Keith pays deep homage to Bud Powell and flows on from there.
This week at Keys Keith’s trio features Eric Markowitz- bass and Smith Dobson -drums. Patrick Wolff-saxophone joins the fray on Friday March 3rd, and Jay Sanders-trumpet and Scott Larson-trombone join Keith on Saturday evening March 4th to form the “Hardbop Quintet”.
