About this project

Keith Karns Big Band: Thought and Memory

Hi, my name is Keith Karns, composer, trumpet player and band leader for the Keith Karns Big Band.

Right now I’m in the process of releasing my first album and I am asking for your support through Kickstarter to help make it happen.

Jazz is all about collaboration and this record was made possible through collaboration with some of the best musicians from the Midwest and across the country.

We were fortunate enough to all get in the studio last spring. What came out of that session was some of the most exciting music I have ever been involved with.

Some of the musicians you will hear on this record are:

Saxophones

Jim Geddes, Justin Kevan, Aaron Hedenstrom, Brian Handeland, Jon Vallejo.

Trumpets

Jeff Walk, Paul Stodolka, Elizabeth Tomlinson, Josh Fuchs.

Trombones

Joe Hartson, Nick Syman, Jason Marshall, Josh Becker.

Rhythm

Steve Hobert, Brian Claxton, Ken Ge, Courtney Karns.

Production

Keith Karns, Carl Schroeder, Daniel Walden.

Your support will go towards:

  • Royalty fees
  • CD replication
  • Disc mastering

All of which must be financed before we can release this project!

For more information about me or my band and updates about the new album and our CD release tour, you can check out my website at www.keithkarnsmusic.com, follow me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/keithkarnsmusic, or on twitter at www.twitter.com/keithkarns.

Thank you so much for watching and taking the time to listen. I truly appreciate your support!
