Keith Davis

I'm a jazz pianist, composer and instructor. I've been playing professionally for 30 years. Currently, I live in Greenville, SC. My hometown is Atlanta, and I've lived and worked all over the Southeast with lots of great musicians. I attended Georgia State University, where I played in the Jazz Band, which led to a three week tour of Scandinavia. I also attended Berklee in 1982. In 1985, I attended the Banff Summer Jazz Workshop with Dave Liebman, Dave Holland, John Abercrombie, Kenny Wheeler, Cecil Taylor, Julian Priester,etc. My first road band was the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Later I worked with the Artie Shaw Orchestra and with Matt “Guitar” Murphy. Also spent some time working on cruise ships in the Caribbean and in Hawaii. I've been house pianist at lots of clubs over the years, and played in lots of jazz festivals, particularly Atlanta, Jacksonville, Brevard, and frequently at the Savannah Jazz Fest. I've performed with Ben Riley, Pat LaBarbera, Mike Mainieri, David “Fathead” Newman. For several years, I performed with the Teddy Adams Quintet alongside Delbert Felix and Samarai Celestial. Now I perform solo and with bassist Mike Holstein from Asheville, NC, as well as with lots of other great musicians from the area. I teach privately and as an adjunct at Furman University. I also offer classes and private instruction in Taiji, which I've been studying for over 25 years
