The Keith Chasin Quintet Presents The Music of Bobby Timmons
One of my greatest influences in music is Bobby Timmons. Hailing from Philadelphia, he revolutionized jazz with his soulful approach and blues-based music, impacting the world of jazz with his tenure in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers as well as his extensive list of recordings that he was a part of. His deep swing and bluesy stylings represented the joy and fun that Philadelphia jazz is all about.
With this, we pay tribute to one of the greatest voices in jazz, performing his compositions and arrangements with our own little twist added. These tracks were recorded Live at Chris' Jazz Cafe March 12, 2020
The Keith Chasin Pop Trio
Sometimes, a pandemic is the perfect crucible to create art. This group was created during the COVID-19 pandemic as a vehicle for popular music in a jazz context. We take our favorite popular songs and turn them on their head in jazz derangements, keeping them recognizable but reborn. We work as either a trio or with a vocalist, depending on the venue.
