The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Musician's Corner: Chris Keefe Plays Chobim

Air Date: 6/4/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET


There's a spelling error, you say? Something wrong with a composer's name?

Nope. It's correct - Chobim. The mythical composer created by pianist Chris Keefe!

By now you must have decided what it is, and I had the same reaction. Could it really be what I am thinking, and how must it sound if it is? When I heard the song with this title on his new CD Opening, I listened carefully to see if my suspicions would be confirmed.

Tune in during Brazil/World Jazz hour 10am-11am ET on the next edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch to hear Mr. Keefe describe this song for us. He'll answer your question about the title, and then he'll go further. Yes, there's more.

Additional folks influenced this song besides those two. Neil Diamond for example, related to a certain television series. J.S. Bach for another.

 Tune in between 10am-11am ET 

to hear this edition of Musician's Corner.

Do you ever wonder where the artist's inspiration comes from? Perhaps unsurprisingly, there are mundane sources of inspiration in the world of jazz music, like pop songs and TV shows!

Don't miss this interesting and fun edition of Musician's Corner. And thanks again for tuning in to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
