River Stone Jazz

The G.K. Story

The G.K. Story is Denver-area, alto saxophonist Yasuo Ishikawa’s first release of his compositions plus those of his longtime teacher George Keith, one of Denver’s great jazz musicians, composers and teachers. Though a CD project planned by Keith and Ishikawa never came to be, before the teacher succumbed to cancer, the student has now recorded a CD with his band, The SoBo Four. The band members came together at the Broadway School of Music on South Broadway in Denver, under the direction of international jazz performer and Dazzle regular Justin Adams. The recording features Adams as guest pianist, Ishikawa on alto sax, Derek Woodbury on bass, and Brian Mixon on drums.
