Guitarist Kevin Golden has been playing jazz for over 29 years in the Hudson Valley
and greater NYC area. His style is influenced by Grant Green, Rene Thomas, and
Joshua Breakstone. He has studied with Joshua Breakstone, Peter Leitch, John
Scofield, and Sal Salvador.
Kevin's first recording as a leader, "Pelham Parkway" has been released and available
for digital download. The session was recorded along with the musical collaboration
and contributions of Akiko Tsuruga on Hammond B3 organ and Peter Grant on drums,
at Tedesco Studios in Paramus NJ. Seven original tunes penned by Golden pay
homage to the legendary organ trio sounds of Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and Wes
Montgomery (san octaves).
For the past 8 years Kevin has collaborated with Steve Kaiser in multiple formats (duo,
