Polly Harrison and Kyle Keener got started playing together at Incarnate Word as students in 1971. Drama instructor Mareen Halligan asked them to play a Friday lunch concert in the Downstage Theater, and that was the beginning of Small World.
Over the years they have headlined numerous jazz festivals and have played several long-term house gigs including years at The Landing on the Riverwalk. They have hosted a renowned jazz jam session for more than 35 years.
They have backed up nationally known musicians including Bucky Pizzarelli, Bill Watrous, Richey Cole, Cal Collins, Gene Bertoncini, Gilbert Puente and Clifford Scott. Small World has recorded numerous CDs, some in their own name and others with the Four Freshmen and as part of Richey Cole's Alto Madness Orchestra.
