    “A whole lot of interpretive brilliance” is how JazzTimes describes Clairdee’s soulfully alluring style and rich timbre. She swings, has an intimate, vulnerable way with a ballad, and can shout at will, revealing roots in the gospel church. Her masterly interpretation of lyrics is a gift aptly described by the inimitable Nancy Wilson who said, “In the tradition of all great vocalists, Clairdee infuses each song with her own unique style while always remaining true to the song itself.” This week, Clairdee and her masterful trio of pianist Ken French,bassist Ron Belcher and drummer Jim Zimmerman,  pay homage to songs of love and loss.

    Please note we are open on Tuesday, February 14th for Valentines Day and will not be open on Wednesday, February 15th.

    Contemporary jazz composer and guitarist Obiedo has had an eclectic musical background during his youth spent in the San Francisco Bay Area. The sounds of Miles Davis, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Henry Mancini and the popular sounds of Motown Records influenced his early musical persona. Probably the greatest influence on his embryonic career, however, was the James Brown revue, whose funky, percussive guitar sounds was the platform on which Obiedo built his technique.

    At Keys he features his two working ensembles including:

    The Ray Obiedo Group featuring Peter Horvath – piano, Dan Feiszli – acoustic bass, Jeff Cressman – trombone and Phil Hawkins – drums.

    Ray Obiedo: The Latina Jazz Ensemble with  Jeff Cressman – trombone, Murray Low – piano, Michael Spiro – percussion, Dave Belove – bass, Phil Hawkins – drums.

    Happy Hour 5pm – 6pm. Doors open at 6pm, shows begin at 7pm and 9pm.
