On the 1 year anniversary of the killing of Mike Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, in St. Louis suburb Ferguson, Missouri, Kev Choice drops this poignant song and video “Gone Too Far”.
The song addresses Kev’s feelings when hearing of the murder of Mike Brown, as well as many others killed at the hands of police officers, an issue that has plagued the headlines all too often in the last year. The song can be found of Kev Choice’s latest project “Love And Revolution”. The video was directed and edited by Myles Bess.
Kev Choice will be performing an intimate trio performance for First Friday, August 7th at Awaken Cafe in Oakland! Kev will be working with two Bay Area’s up and coming musician’s Ayinde Webb on Drums and Kenshay Gooden on Bass. They will be exploring some of Kev’s original music as well as some choice jazz, hip-hop, and soul covers. Kev Choice say’s, “I always wanted to explore the trio format like a lot of my favorite pianist did. McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Mulgrew Miller, and Robert Glasper are some of the amazing piano trio’s that have inspired me. I definitely wanted to present the trio with a modern twist doing everything from originals, to some classic jazz to New Edition to Drake.” Also performing will be Classic/Hip-Hop Band “Ensemble Mik Nawooj”.

Kev Choice recently spent some time playing Pianos at an amazing exhibit, “Flower Piano” in SF Botanical Gardens recently. The exhibit placed 12 pianos throughout the outdoor surroundings in the SF Botanical Gardens. Kev Choice enjoyed walking through the Gardens, playing on the pianos, listening to other pianist, and taking turns playing classical, jazz, original compositions, and whatever they wanted! Great exhibit, look for it again next year!
