Brian Kellock (born 1962) is a Scottish jazz pianist.
Born in Edinburgh, Brian graduated with a B. Music (Hons) from Edinburgh University in 1986. Since then, he has been establishing his position as one of the top piano players in the UK jazz scene, working with Herb Geller, Sheila Jordan, Art Farmer, Red Rodney, Charlie Rouse, Bill Watrous, Scott Hamilton, Stanley Turrentine, and many others.
From 1995, Brian has been a member of Australian trumpeter James Morrison's Band; touring all over Europe and Australia, and recording a live album for Warner Bros. Records at the New Morning Club in Paris, along the way.
His main project is his own Trio, which first appeared as the rhythm section for seminal Scottish band, the John Rae Collective, as long ago as 1988. This line-up, featuring Kenny Ellis on bass and John Rae on drums, has been performing together ever since. Finally, in 1998, the band released their first recording together – Something's Got To Give – a set of standards popularised by Fred Astaire.
