For nearly 50 years jazz guitarist Calvin Keys has been a leader of his own bands, producer of his recordings and an accompanist of 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.
He started playing guitar professionally at age 16. 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, who he worked on and off with until 1995.
For this concert, Keys will have his quintet of Bass, Drums, Sax and Piano.
Don’t miss this incredible evening of jazz!
