The Master Keys is a unique jazz and blues band that is stacked with some of the finest young musicians in New York City today. They specialize in the kind of soulful, jazz-inflected rhythm and blues that was popularized by greats like Ray Charles in the 50's and 60's, but also play jazz from the 30's through the 50's - with a whole lot of swing and verve. After all, one of their goals is to evoke the cool sophistication of jazz with the deep rootsy-ness of the blues. Another is to get everyone moving with them, and maybe even traveling to another time with them - to an era when real musicians, with real instruments, reached and moved people through music that was live, real, and raw. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine.
