KUHN FU

KUHN FU is paranoid prog punk jazz performance. KUHN FU’s third album Chain the Snake is released by BERTHOLD records on March 22nd. Christian Kühn who also composed the music sees “stylistic changes since our last record. The band today is a paranoid – prog – punk – jazz performance,” he explains. Working on the previous album Kuhnspiracy, Kühn had suffered from a “post romantic jazz/rock disorder”, a condition unknown to reputable psychiatry. “The romantic stood for an unfulfilled craving, still there, but the punk who doesn’t care is winning at the moment” he explains. Founded in 2012 in Groningen, Netherlands, the band’s line up is Christian Kühn from Germany on guitar, Ziv Taubenfeld from Israel on clarinet, Esat Ekincioglu from Turkey on bass, and George Hadow from England

His interest in improvised music (fooling around with the orchestras charts or diggin into jazz records) grew bigger after meeting the influential saxophone player Albert Beger who opened up a road that eventually led to further studies of the bass clarinet with Michael Moore in the Netherlands. ​ Moving to Amsterdam has encouraged Ziv to inspiring collaborations with a wide variety of artists from the city's improvised music scene and it's satelite musicians

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.
