Peter Kavanaugh

Los Angeles-based guitarist, bandleader, and composer Peter Kavanaugh spent over a decade as a Southern California sideman before taking center stage with his 2015 debut album “Whisper Not” — a selection of lesser-known American songbook gems rooted in electric guitar and vibraphone. The self-released album received airplay on over 50 national radio stations including regular rotation locally on KKJZ Jazz 88.1 fm. Jazziz Magazine called “Whisper Not” “A refreshingly old-school approach to songbook standards … he allows the original harmonies and melodies to shine, even as he overlays tones and textures from his vast library.” With his November 2016 follow-up album “Look for the Silver Lining,” Peter builds on his sophisticated, West Coast Cool Jazz sound with more brass, more blues and ambitious arrangements of songs by Dave Brubeck, Rodgers & Hart and other great 20th century composers.

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.
