NIPPERTOWN

Universal Blues

"Some see the blues as a confining category, a system of fences, borders or limitations. To Keith Pray, the fences touch what’s on the other side, and imports freely cross borders."

-Michael Hochanadel (Nippertown)

ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Confluence

"Blending creative and innovative original compositions with the power-playing performance of Pray and his band, Confluence seems the perfect vehicle for bringing these artistic expressions to light in an album that leaves little to chance and a lot to enjoy."

CHRONOGRAM

Confluence

"Pray has a Cannonball Adderly aggressiveness, with Maceo Parker’s sense of melody. He makes respectful nods to the greats while looking firmly to the future. Don’t miss this one."

-David Malachowski (Chronogram)

ALBANY JAZZ

Live at the Lark

"Keith Pray’s Big Soul Ensemble has not only survived in an economic morass that eats most bands – let alone 17-piece big bands – like chicken wings at a Super Bowl buffet; it has thrived, staging outstanding performances at A Place For Jazz and the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival"

-J Hunter (Albany Jazz)
