Keith Kelly
The People Who Left

"This record is a snap shot; A series of relationships captured in real time while also is a looking back. Any record is a record from the past; any moment captured is one set adrift, ready to take harbor at some future point, or referencing some other time, some other place, some other version of self. The People Who Left is a way to name all those (your own self included) who came before. They are gone and will always be gone. We are always becoming, but that also means we are always leaving. Final thoughts: You must pay attention; you must not ignore what is now, or shirk away. You must not be sad, but grateful for the small gifts, and the realizations that come. Regardless of the monsters around, you must break though, and hope the little something extra, in the end, is enough." - kbk, march 2014

Though listed by the leader’s name, Keith Kelly, this is a group that performs often under the name: Ask Not - a quartet of like-minded musicians, focusing on blending genres and approaches in a democratic model, and in real-time. Drawing inspiration from the 20th and 21st century popular music, this group seeks out the slurry-messy places between one thing and the other.

Keith Kelly - soprano, tenor saxophones, bass clarinet, flute
Ari Chersky - guitar
Shaun Lowecki - drums and cymbals
Doug Stuart - upright bass

"The moments that gave birth to these improvisations have been long gone now, but listening to these recordings they can establish a new momentum in your experience." - Vital Weekly
