Album Notes
Joe Keyes is equal parts front man, poet and band conductor. The Freehold, NJ, native found his orchestra in late 2009 in The Late Bloomer Band, a concoction of Baltimore-area musicians. The band takes audiences back to the days of Miles Davis and early P-Funk, when big bands were lead by strong forces of individuals. The band's brand of live improvisation and musical sophistication presents a different experience at every show.

While Keyes draws inspiration from musical mentors Gil Scott-Heron, Joe Bowie, and Sun Ra, The Late Bloomer Band brings a modern interpretation to funk, jazz, rock and a variety of other genres.

Finally on EP after all these years, Joe Keyes & the Late Bloomer Band sets a new standard for the future of funky jazz music!

The Real Deal
Joe Keyes is a local treasure. He has great heart, which comes through in all his performances and recordings. This music has heart, humor, and worldly wisdom. Joe is a great human being, and brings that humanity into his compositions and performances. He brings together young musicians, and coaxes performances out of them that not only technical mastery but the real essence of musicality.
