Monthly Music Series: Ken Kehner Quartet: Jobim Reimagined

Enjoy an evening of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s most memorable melodies as performed by the Ken Kehner Quartet. Experience arrangements that feature unique feels, funky grooves, and radical reharmonization quite different from Jobim’s original intent. Along the way, the quartet will pay tribute to the jazz greats Wayne Shorter and Brad Mehldau, among others.

Ken Kehner is an active performer, educator, and clinician. He holds a degree in piano performance from Truman State University where he served as staff accompanist and later joined the faculty as a jazz instructor. Ken is currently on faculty at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, where he teaches jazz piano, improvisation, conducts several jazz combos, and assists with the jazz ensemble.

Ken has backed such noted artists as Bill Watrous, Bobby Shew, Buddy DeFranco and many others. He recently released his first recording as a leader, “From This Moment On,” featuring Marty Morrison on drums and Nick Jost on bass.
