George Kahn carries West Coast Jazz into the 21st Century
West Coast Jazz pianist George Kahn carries the tradition of jazz greats Dave
Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi and Horace Silver into the 21st Century. His tenth release on
the Playing Records label, DreamCatcher features all-star band mates Pat Kelley on
guitar and Alex Acuna (of Weather Report fame) on a romp through cover tunes new
and old, punctuated with Kahn's originals. In addition to his jazz albums, Kahn's music
has been featured on TV, including on The Young and the Restless, How William
Shatner Changed the World and commercials for Lexus.
My Jazz Story
Published on: 2016-10-15
I love jazz because it frees my mind.
I was first exposed to jazz in College, listening to Kulu Se Mama by John Coltrane.
I met Bill Evans when he played a club in Boston while I was in college.
The best show I ever attended was Miles Davis Live at the Fillmore.
The first jazz record I bought was Dave Brubeck.
My advice to new listeners is keep listening, and go see live jazz. Live jazz is where it is at!
