Charles Kynard

Born:

Charles Kynard is an organist whose jazz-funk leanings rival his predecessors and peers, though not eclipsing them. Solid, though never flashy. He also plays electric bass. Kynard's album Reelin' With the Feelin' has been sampled and appears on several acid jazz releases. Hammond virtuoso and electric-bass player, Kynard didn't become too famous for two reasons: he just played in his local L.A. instead of touring, and he recorded very few sessions. Nevertheless, his artistry was enormous and his recordings are true gems. He was too busy to devote himself to a successful career as a jazz musician

50th Anniversary Blue Notes for May & More

Charles Kynard: Legends of Acid Jazz

Read "Legends of Acid Jazz" reviewed by AAJ Staff


The name is unfamiliar; the sound is welcome. A full-time teacher in Los Angeles, Charles Kynard did not record often (as a leader, just one album after he left Prestige.) But he’s got that feel you love in an organ: subtle and sweet, and a strut when he needs it. These dates, among his last for ...

Charles Kynard: Legends of Acid Jazz

Read "Legends of Acid Jazz" reviewed by Douglas Payne


Charles Kynard (1933-79) had a brief, rather low-key career as an organist. By day, he maintained a full-time career working with kids with special needs and taught piano between gigs and his job.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
