      Singer and pianist Ellyn Rucker's great pianistic skills and her sensuous voice belie her late start as a jazz performer. She started playing piano when she was eight; ten years later she was studying classical piano at Drake University. Jazz music was in her life as a teenager, but she did not start performing as a singer-pianist until 1979. In the ensuing time she was an ordinary mother, raising a family, and playing infrequently. She was born and raised in Des Moines, but calls Denver her musical home. Though she is a fixture in Colorado, and she has made many European tours, played many festivals, and appeared in many clubs across America, her name is not well-known to the general jazz fan. Her bop and Bill Evans influenced piano can stand on its own, and her singing is top rank. Her few recordings show her music to be powerful and appealing.
      Keith Oxman has played with notable artists Sonny Stitt, Art Blakey, Buddy Rich, Jack McDuff, Red Holloway, Pete Christlieb, Joe Bonner, Billy Wallace, Tom Harrell, Phil Woods, Dave Brubeck, Gerry Bergonzi and many more.

      "In recent years, Keith Oxman has become one of my closest friends, in a relationship reminiscent of my early musical associations with John Coltrane, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton, and others."
      - Curtis Fuller

      "Keith Oxman is a young man of great consequence. He has learned to function with one foot in the present and the other in the future, while leaning quite heavily in the direction of the future." - Benny Golson
