Review from Live performance at the Dakota in Minneapolis with Curtis Stigers
“One of the most entertaining drummers on the Dakota stage in recent months, Keith Hall has chops and fuel to hit the after- burner zone. An alum of Betty Carter’s “Jazz Ahead,” Hall (also known as “The Reverend of Swing”) has the fastest hands I’ve seen since Steve Smith, “churning” the skins as noted by John Fordham (The Guardian) and giving the audience a lot to watch as well as hear. His knock-out round on “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind” suggests he could have been a successful rock drummer, but jazz is much the better for his choice. Although often at full throttle, Hall was not hesitant to dial it back to a slow groove onthe ballads with gentle splashes of brush.”
