Chasing Keith Jarrett…

In the realm of improvised jazz and solo piano, Keith Jarrett is my number one influence.

Keith Jarrett (born May 8, 1945 in Allentown, Pennsylvania) is considered one of the most important living jazz piano players. He was a keyboardist for jazz legend Miles Davis and later established a highly successful solo career in both classical and jazz music.

Have been practicing a lot of piano and drums lately. I have both set up in the garage, and I’m playing some fun jam sessions with my sons.
