ROGER KELLAWAY
Pianist, Composer & Arranger

“Back On The Scene Performing”
JAZZ AT KITANO
August 21 & 22, 2015

ROGER KELLAWAY Pianist, Composer & Arranger “Back On The Scene Performing” JAZZ AT KITANO August 21 & 22, 2015 Roger Kellaway, Pianist, Composer & Arranger is eagerly getting back to the performing side of his illustrious career. Oscar Peterson once said, “I love Roger Kellaway!”…and Roger loved Oscar who was one of his earliest influences. “His will to swing always inspired me”, says Kellaway who will be joined at KITANO’S by Jay Leonhart on bass and Joe Cohn on Guitar, harking back to his love of an early Peterson style trio.

The program will consist of music from his CD “Heroes”, that was awarded “Best Classic Jazz Recording Of The Year “ in France; some surprises and original songs written with the great Alan & Marilyn Bergman known for their many hits with Barbra Streisand. Kellaway has scored 29 films, including “A Star Is Born” (for Streisand) which was nominated for an Oscar. His eclectic bio includes Musical Directing for Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Kevin Spacey & Van Morrison, touring with Joni Mitchell – commissioned compositions for George Balanchine’s NY City Ballet, The L.A. & New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia, New York & Boston Pops as well as The New West Symphony and The National Symphony in Washington DC.

As Pianist, Roger Kellaway has performed all over the world – solo, duo, small ensemble, including performances with The Israel Philharmonic. Eddie Daniels and Kellaway continue their duo & trio concerts in the US and abroad with their latest CD “Duke At The Road House”, which won the Grand Prix du Jazz (2014 Record Of The Year). He also received a ‘Grammy’ for his writing on “Memos from Paradise”, another CD recorded with Daniels.

One of his commissioned works, “Visions Of America: A Photo-Symphony” is an orchestral, multimedia portrait of Democracy. The 50 minute show for full orchestra, features Kellaway on “Jazz piano”, five songs with lyrics by the Bergmans, sung by Patti Austin & Steve Tyrell, plus chorus & narration by Clint Eastwood. The most recent commission, “Many Moods Of McCartney”, is a three-movement piece for two pianos (Kellaway & the great Peter Beets), bass and drums. The piece premiered to standing ovations at an Ashville Symphony concert in September 2014.

Eager to put most of his energy these days into performing, Kellaway will be playing a solo piano concert in Milan on November 29th at Teatro Manzoni. He will also be a Special Guest with The Django Festival All-Stars at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara, this coming November 10th, during their major cross country tour.

Join Roger Kellaway as he steps back into the NY scene!
