Pianist Paul Keeling brings together a stellar quintet to celebrate his new album release Ancient Lights. Nominated for Best Jazz Recording 2015 by the Western Canada Music Awards, the disc is a powerful mix of earthy hard-bop and stratospheric luminosity as reflected in the title track’s melody floating over a driving rhythm bed. Keeling gives unique and powerful expression to his multiple influences which include classical music, 1970’s Rock, and jazz. With Jon Bentley tenor sax, Brad Turner trumpet, Adam Thomas bass, Bernie Arai drums.
