Soul of Courage with Marilyn Keller
Gun reform, music, and the rhythm of relentlessness
By Kevin Teater
Tuesday, May 25, 2021
“I sing because I have to,” Marilyn Keller told me midway through our conversation.
“Singing is one of the ways that I feed my spirit. If I could not sing, I would be one very depressed, hopeless person. When I was a child, my family would tease me because I would burst into song at random occasions.”
Marilyn is an incredible vocalist. She’s been singing professionally for almost 40 years, resulting in her induction into the Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame in 2016.
“The new CD is here! The NEW CD is HERE!!!” Black Swan Classic Jazz Band worked all last year to get this done- remotely! #KitJohnsonIsAGenius Hat’s off to the pandemic-induced “Pandemonium!” I have hard copies. Also available digitally- Spotify, etc.
Pandemonium is a brand new recording from 2020 that includes early blues, ragtime and jazz favorites, three original songs composed by members of the band and featured vocals by Marilyn Keller. CDs may be pre-ordered at this time for shipment in February 2021. Click on our new HearNow page for sample clips from each track.
If you want a CD for their own library, you can purchase through www.bscjb.com
Marilyn is a treasured veteran of Portland's jazz and gospel music scenes who is often called in to bring life to songs by others.
