I read a recent quote about a piano player composer and band leader that said, “…delivers music from the heart of the piano to the ear–and heart–of the listener”. I would add that this same player delivers from his heart and soul. Comments about his solo work on his album Heart of The Piano include this: ‘a mission to redefine solo jazz piano as a personal and interactive showcase of melody, energy and groove’. I love when I experience an artist who is as engaging when the creativity is simple and sweetly melodic as they are when impressively bombastic with the energy of fireworks. Delicate and attentive, soulful and able to offer a groove that sits well in every occasion. If the piano was the tin man from The Wizard of Oz Geoffrey Keezer is the true artist wizard who can give it its heart.
