Brian Kastan

Jazz-Fusion guitarist, Brian Kastan introduces his newest CD, “Not So Standard". This album showcases dynamic New approach to playing mostly jazz and two classic rock standards from the sound perspective on the Brian Kastan group. The goal of this album is to demonstrate how Brian has developed a new and exiting hybrid finger picking technique that allows the listener to hear something new with-in the American songbook that brings the listener on a virtuosic and sensitive improvisational journey. The band is constantly pushing, pulling, and weaving the compositions to create music that articulates the feeling of always evolving with in the structure of the composed song. This album produces high energy jazz-fusion between Brian Kastan’s raw yet playful electric guitar, Miles Griffith’s rich provocative vocals, bassist Steve Rust’s artful sound pallet, and Peter O’Brien’s rhythmic and dynamic play on drums—All of which take the listener on a journey to new, uncharted musical territory

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
