Rick Kilburn

Band Leader, musician, composer, award-winning record producer, engineer and educator. Rick Kilburn can lay claim to all of the above. Born and raised in a musical family from Vancouver, B.C., Kilburn grew up listening to and playing Jazz. He attended the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, during 1973/74, and from there moved to New York, where he worked as a bassist with such diverse players as Dave Brubeck, Mose Allison, Airto, Flora Purim and Chet Baker. After ten years in New York, Kilburn returned to the West Coast of British Columbia. He taught music and improvisation at Malaspina College on Vancouver Island from 1984 to 1987 and started his first production company, creating jingles and sound tracks for radio, television and film. Kilburn joined the faculty at Vancouver Community College in 1987, teaching bass and master classes, as well as developing a course in demo production and giving workshops in recording. From 1990 to 1995, he was on the faculty of the Jazz Workshop at the Banff Center for the Arts, originating and developing the audio portion of the program that attracts engineers from around the world

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
