Ann Arbor Jazz Heroes string bassist Paul Keller and vibraphonist Cary Kocher lead their quintet featuring vocalist/clarinetist Sarah D'Angelo, pianist Adam Mosley and trumpeter Paul Finkbeiner. Keller's tidy arrangements frame Sarah's beautiful vocal stylings and intimate song delivery; Cary's virtuosic vibraphone chops are bodacious; Fink and Adam bring high-energy and good humor to the festivities; Keller is indefatigable.

Always included are plenty of melody, plenty of creative jazz improvisation; nifty intros and endings abound, along with riffs, ditties, diving boards, vamps, send-offs and shout choruses; these musical sign-posts dot the Keller/Kocher landscape and point to on/off ramps on their fascinating and fun jazz highway....

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
