Primary Instrument: Vibraphone
Bassist Pat Klobas and vibraphonist Tommy Kesecker met on a live recording date at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and later at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music during their musical studies. After school they headed in different directions. Tommy joined Zakir Hussain and the Rhythm Experience and Pat headed into both classical and jazz work.
They came together again performing at the Gualala Arts Music Festival with the San Francisco Chamber Jazz Quartet featuring Tommy as a special guest. The exceptional energy from that concert was the inspiration that lead to the formation of the Klobas/Kesecker Ensemble....
“Broad in it’s scope, the wide spectrum of material here is executed with great craft and artistic consideration by all of these fine musicians. Highly recommended.” – Joe Locke- vibraphonist
“The solo’s presented here are superb. I highly suggest the cd to listeners of all genres of music.” – Richard Davis-jazz bassist
“Any time an album features more original songs than covers is a good time. When the originals are free-spirited, unbound by time or other restraints, so much the better. Add to these a few covers that have something fresh and invigorating about them, and you’ve got an excellent album. ‘No Gravity’ scores on all fronts. – Woodrow Wilkins-All About Jazz
