"A hard-swinging musician who conjures up images of magical vistas...Keeling combines logic and magic, often coming up with almost inexplicable phrases and lines that not only seem plausible but seem to fit in a sort of mystical way, like fire on a mountain and rumbling deep within the earth..."
Raul d'Gama Rose, All About Jazz
"The Farthest Reach is a testament both to Keeling's sophisticated understanding of the jazz idiom and his particular bent toward meditative explorations that often seem closer to landscapes than songs...Keeling takes a decidedly expansive approach, shaping soft-edged melodies that rely more on sensitive phrasing than flashy fingerplay, and that evidence his mixed classical and jazz background, much like the music of fellow pianist Keith Jarrett."
Joe Nickell, The Missoulian
"Richly rewarding, The Farthest Reach grooves without letting up for a second."
Glen Hall, Exclaim!
"There is a Lyle Mays-esque feel to Keeling's full-bodied, melodically rich and often swinging style. "
Stuart Derdeyn, The Province
