Keys Please is Feb 2, 2007

Can this really be the sixth year? Groundhog Day approaches fast, and that means it’s time for Keys Please!

Carei Thomas, Todd Harper and I have been running this annual tradition of a playful, genre-bending celebration of keyboard music since 2001, and by golly, I think we’ve got something special going. It shows a slightly different side of my musical life than In the Hands, and it’s unlike any other concert I know of. For those of you who don’t know about Keys Please, Minnesota Public Radio did a wonderful feature on last year’s concert.

This year’s special guest is David Edminster, who is mostly a tenor sax player, but will also be slipping in some bassoon and clarinet. The guy has got some serious jazz in him; you don’t want to miss this.
