Michael Kaeshammer isn’t so much a piano player as a piano whisperer, a master musician, and songwriter able to coax dazzling, kaleidoscopic sounds from his instrument in a way few can rival. Joined by his ensemble of four musicians, that gift powers Turn It Up, Kaeshammer’s superb 15th album, broadly described as “eclectic yet accessible jazz-based pop.” Across a globe-trotting career highlighted by nine tours of China, three appearances at the Olympics, and shows opposite international superstars, the German-born, B.C.-based Kaeshammer has electrified audiences with his indelible repertoire and consistently positive outlook on life which infuse his lyrics.
Thank you to Kate Merry for sponsoring this performance.
