Immediately, there's a connection: Keith Andrew spent his childhood in Baltimore (small world!) - then moved to the San Francisco Bay area when he was a teen. He had been playing guitar since he was ten - and the rich diversity of music in Northern California fueled him further. Led to Los Angeles, he studied some of the most prestigious guitarists on the planet: Robben Ford, Joe Pass and more.
Keith made sure that he received an education that was suited for the future he was seeking. He was part of the Chaffey College Jazz Ensemble - and excelled so much that he won awards from The National Association of Jazz Educators. He did exceptionally well at the Guitar Institute of Technology, too. And became a staff instructor there. The best of paths followed our guest because he became associated with a very successful L.A. based group called Himilaya. The band got serious buzz and received national airplay - and also had a chance to tour.
Fast forward to 2014 and Keith Andrew has "Adventurous Soul" up and running - with 13 tracks and a who's who of Contemporary Jazz. The COOL piece of this Hybrid puzzle is that Keith has made some terrific choices, regarding who's around him, what he composes, and how he views his music. He found in fellow guitarist, Nils, a kindred spirit. Nils produced six of the songs on "Soul" - and these two exceptional artists found that their FEEL encompassed a fusion that included a vision of World music. Keith developed a passion for expanding his vision when he spent time with the California based group, Zulu Spear. He's an interesting guy, as well as the consummate guitarist. He loves the outdoors and is not a lightweight about it - Keith has been to countries to hike that have only been a part of many of our dreams :) Please join us in welcoming Keith Andrew on 12/4/2014!
