Joe Locke / Geoffrey Keezer Group

In a career moving from one milestone to the next with accelerating regularity, the past decade has represented particularly extraordinary artistic growth for vibraphonist Joe Locke as a composer and leader. Beginning in 2001 with the Storms/Nocturnes Trio collaboration with Geoffrey Keezer and Tim Garland, and moving forward with projects under his own leadership – ranging from the Four Walls of Freedom group and Milt Jackson Tribute Band to the more recent Force of Four – Locke's deep understanding of the jazz tradition, married with a profound and unrelenting modernism, has established him as the most multi-dimensional vibraphonist of his generation, and also as one of the most imaginative, lyrical and emotionally arresting leader/composers in today’s jazz arena.
