Pianist Ken French has been the featured pianist at San Franciso’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel for the past 17 years. He also has performed for many of the top corporate and private events. His versatility makes him a perfect choice for corporate and social events featuring jazz, Latin favorites and standards.
Ken is the music director for popular jazz and cabaret singer Clairdee (www.clairdee.com). Their sold out concerts at Yoshi’s in Jack London Square and throughout the Bay Area have helped to make Ken one of the Bay Area’s busiest pianists and arrangers.
Inspired by the rich tradition of jazz piano trios from Ahmad Jamal to Keith Jarrett, this ensemble will drop listeners into the groove from the first beat, keep the party going with classics from the American songbook, and turn up the heat with their original pieces.
