Event Details

The Doug Horn Trio consists of long time friends Doug Horn -Reeds, Paul Keller-String Bass, and Rick Roe Piano. Their new CD "High Standards" is a compilation of tunes from the American Songbook, including some songs that are not commonly heard these days, such as " If Ever I Would Leave You", "Heartaches". "The Best things In Life Are Free", and several others. They will also perform some original compositions. It is the focus of this group to preserve and carry on the tradition of playing songs with emphasis on melodious interpretations.

This performance is generously sponsored by John Lilley. 

Doug Horn

Well versed in the musical styles of bebop, swing, latin, blues, and ballads, Doug has been performing for 41 years in Michigan and around various parts of the world.

His style reflects influences from such jazz giants as Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley, Phil Woods, Dexter Gordon, and Stan Getz.

Though known for his love of hard-swinging bebop, he is also a gifted balladeer. His solos are emotional and harmonically lush, and often laced with musical quotes from other songs.

Doug's array of instruments include alto, tenor, and soprano saxes, flute, alto flute, and piccolo. Among the notable musicians he has performed with are Phil Woods, Jimmy Forest, Clare Fisher, Claude Black, Eddie Russ, Clark Terry, Marcus Belgrave, Jack Mcduff, Bill Watrous, Don Menza and Dizzy Gillespie.

Paul Keller

Paul Keller is one of the busiest bassists in the Detroit area today, earning the nickname “The House Bass Player For The State Of Michigan.” Since 1989, Paul has led the 15-piece Paul Keller Orchestra, which plays original, obscure and classic big band material from all periods of jazz history, and performs every Monday night at the Zal Gaz Grotto in Ann Arbor. Paul also plays in the popular Keller/Kocher Quartet and in The Paul Keller Ensemble, a three-horn sextet that features creative arrangements by Keller and his bandmates. Paul has been recognized internationally for his association with pianist/singer Diana Krall and guitarist Russell Malone.

Rick Roe

Rick Roe won First Place in the Great American Jazz Piano Competition in 1994, was twice a Semifinalist in Thelonius Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, in 1993 and 1999, and has been a featured performer in the Jacksonville (Florida) Jazz, Savannah (Georgia) Onstage International Arts, Montreaux/ Detroit Jazz, Birmingham Jazz, Lansing Jazz, Flint Jazz, and Hawaii Jazz (with Frank Morgan) Festivals.
