KEITH FRANKLIN-

my story, at least a slice of it

 

 

 

 

I like to think of myself as an exemplary, creative jazz pianist,  having studied with Jackie Bayard, NYC, Olga Von Til of the Conservatory of Budapest, Kenny Barron ,composition with Dennis Sandole and Improvisation with Phil Woods at The Maynard Ferguson School  of Jazz. I attained a B.A. in piano performance from Rutgers University.

Toured in the U.S and opened for Blood Sweat and Tears,B.B. King, Iron Butterfly, and the Youngbloods. 

After my foray into rock and roll I returned to my jazz roots.

 I am  a known entity at many New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey jazz clubs, The Rainbow Room, the Supper Club, The Philadelphia Art Museum ,  Ritz-Carlton, The Saltcreek Grille, The Witherspoon Grill, The Vault, Delta’s and Hopewell Valley Vineyards.

My  new cd “Take Heart”is a mixture of  all original jazz instrumentals and vocals featuring a  swinging, hard hitting ensemble and will be performed at my Cd release party Sunday March 29th at the Arts Council of Princeton at 4pm.
