Keith O’Rourke (Sax)

Saxophone player Keith is a member of many local groups most notably, The Prime Time Big Band and the Calgary Creative Arts Ensemble. Blessed with the opportunity to regularly perform for many of Calgary’s jazz fans, he has been able to make a name for himself and become a recognizable figure in the jazz community. Currently, Keith is focussing on three projects: the Keith O’Rourke Quintet, Baritone Madness, and the Past Present Quintet. The main focus of Keith’s quartet is to feature his own original compositions. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of jazz musicians, his writing is both fresh while still being rooted in the jazz tradition. His most recent album “Baritone Madness” Reached #1 in Canada last year and is becoming a regular fixture on the Canadian Jazz Scene.
