About this Event
Jazz returns to the Athenaeum for our annual series of winter concerts in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Room (at 1008 Wall Street in La Jolla). This series features both Athenaeum favorites and debuts by internationally-acclaimed artists. Seating is limited so order soon!
The series concludes on Thursday, March 9, with the duo of pianist Geoffrey Keezer and vocalist Gillian Margot in their first local performance since moving from San Diego in 2018. The multiple Grammy-nominated Keezer is celebrated internationally for his highly regarded discography, unique compositions, and acclaimed performances in a variety of configurations. Keezer began his career playing in jazz clubs as a teenager, holding down the piano chair for Art Blakey at age 18, and touring with Ray Brown, Joshua Redman, Diana Krall, Art Farmer, and Benny Golson in his 20s. More recently he has toured with Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves, David Sanborn, Chris Botti, Sting, Christian McBride, and his wife and musical partner, Gillian Margot.
With an exquisite voice, a disarmingly wide range and a style that is deeply rooted in the tradition of the great jazz vocalists, Margot possesses a gift of storytelling and stunning lyrical delivery. A native of Toronto, Canada, Margot studied under a generation of jazz legends including Oscar Peterson and Freddy Cole. Equally at home in the musical worlds of jazz, R&B, chamber, and pop, she has performed in major venues worldwide with artists including rock icon Sting, famed soprano Kathleen Battle, and jazz stars Jeremy Pelt, Chris Botti, and Robert Glasper.
