Paul Keller is the leader of several ensembles including his twenty-two-year old fifteen-piece big band, the Paul Keller Orchestra. He is a prolific composer, arranger, jazz educator, recording company owner, producer, and a nationally recognized recording artist. Keller spent several years on the road with guitarist Russell Malone and later with singer/pianist Diana Krall. Together with Malone and Krall, Keller recorded Krall's grammy-nominated CD All For You. Paul has performed around the globe with a myriad of jazz stars including Jackie Ryan, Scott Hamilton, Ken Peplowski and Warren Vache.
At UMMA, Paul leads a quartet of his friends in a performance of familiar standards. The group includes members of The Paul Keller Orchestra, saxophonist Ben Jansson, pianist Duncan McMillan and vocalist Sarah D'Angelo.

This monthly series, curated by UM Associate Professor Adam Unsworth, presents outstanding local artists in an intimate setting. This series is made possible by the Doris Sloan Memorial Fund.
