Roger Kellaway on The Art of Sound

Pianist and composer just starts the list of talents of Roger Kellaway, who will be visiting with Mark Chapman and Bruce Tater on KETR's The Art of Sound Thursday evening, April 26th.

From the host of KETR's The Art of Sound, Mark Chapman:

Roger Kellaway began classical piano lessons at the age of 7. Later he studied composition at the New England Conservatory.

Kellaway has worked with trombonist Kai Winding, saxmen Al Cohn and Zoot Sims, trumpeter Clark Terry and trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, recorded with Ben Webster, Maynard Ferguson, Wes Montgomery and Sonny Rollins.

Kellaway was a member of Don Ellis' big band, served as musical director for Bobby Darin, recorded with baritone saxophonist Gerry Melligan, and toured with Joni Mitchell and Tom Scott's L.A. Express.

Kellaway has composed ballets and orchestral works, performed and recorded with guitarist Mundell Lowe, vocalist Carmen McRae among many others, and has worked in duo settings with fellow pianist Dick Hyman.

Fans of the television classic "All in the Family" will recognize Kellaway's name in the closing credits as the co-writer of the closing theme, "Remembering You".

Kellaway is the guest of Mark and Bruce Tater Thursday night, April 26th, on KETR's The Art of Sound.
