Description

For nearly 50 years jazz guitarist Calvin Keys has been a leader of his own bands, producer of his recordings and an accompanist and soloist by many other legends of jazz.

Through the years, Keys has performed with Ray Charles, Donald Byrd, Bobby Hutcherson, Carmen McCrea, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Eddie Henderson, and Jimmy Witherspoon to name a few.

At the age of 16, Keys started playing guitar professionally. A move to Los Angeles in 1969 launched another wave of growth as Keys worked with the great Oscar Brown Jr. and met Ray Charles, with whom he would work on and off until 1995.

For this concert, Keys will have his quintet of Bass, Drums, Sax and Piano.

Don’t miss this incredible evening of Jazz.
