from Eau Claire, WI
November 21, 1970 (age 50)
Geoff Keezer was only 17 when he became the last pianist in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers (1988-1990), a perfect gig for the talented hard bop musician who fit right in with the tradition of Horace Silver, Bobby Timmons, Cedar Walton, James Williams, and Benny Green. Since Blakey's death, Keezer has recorded steadily as a leader for Sunnyside, Blue Note, DIW/Columbia, and Sackville and played on records led by Art Farmer, Roy Hargrove, and Antonio Hart, among others. Geoff Keezer has also performed and recorded with the Contemporary Piano Ensemble and in 1997 was a member of Ray Brown's Trio. Turn up the Quiet appeared the following year and in early 2000, Keezer returned with Zero One. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
