Keyboard artist Ken Berger began playing piano at age 4, studying classical music into college where he studied composition and performance under the avant garde composer Fred Enenbach. Jazz came calling early when Ken became interested in improvisational music and the excitement of spontaneous composition. While in Dallas he was a part of the popular fusion group Watersign as well as working extensively with trios and quartets with guitarist Bobby Riese and saxophonist Michael Noel.
After relocating to Pittsburgh PA, he had a very productive collaboration with guitarist Nick Bateman and drummer Bill Thomas - forming the trio Just Ahead which was featured at notable jazz clubs such as little E's and CJ's. Ken would also be found backing up saxophone recording artist Lee Robinson as well as other notable Pittburgh musicians. In late 2012 Ken relocated to California, bringing his rich east coast jazz influence to the west coast and Tony Elder & WestBound Groove.
