Steve Kuhn Trio: To and From the Heart

Read "To and From the Heart" reviewed by Peter J. Hoetjes


Now an octogenarian, Steve Kuhn's career has in 2018 spanned nearly sixty years, never having a long lull of time without recording new music. It becomes something of a marvel then that after all this time, the pianist still finds something new to say; he is still able to surprise listeners with songs they don't expect ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Wisteria

Read "Wisteria" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Classe 1938, Steve Kuhn resta tra i pochi grandi pianisti della sua generazione e sa procurare forti emozioni anche nell'abusata formula del trio. Kuhn ha sviluppato negli anni uno stile personalissimo, che si distingue per il tocco limpido, l'equilibrio delle dinamiche e il raffinato senso ritmico. La sua partnership con Joey Baron va avanti da due ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Live at Birdland

Read "Live at Birdland" reviewed by Larry Taylor


It's been said that “Jazz is the sound of surprise. Surprise is what you get with pianist Steve Kuhn's Trio on Live at Birdland. Like a face in a Picasso abstract, parts of a whole come at you from all angles, hardly recognizable. What the artist is showing is, however, crystal clear. Kuhn ingeniously de-constructs standards, ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Live At Birdland

Read "Live At Birdland" reviewed by Joel Roberts


Although Steve Kuhn has recorded as a leader in a variety of settings since the 1960s, has played in the bands of legends like Stan Getz, Kenny Dorham and even John Coltrane (he preceded McCoy Tyner in Coltrane's quartet), he's seldom mentioned in the pantheon of jazz piano giants. His Blue Note debut, Live at Birdland, ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Live at Birdland

Read "Live at Birdland" reviewed by Ken Dryden


With so many major jazz labels shying away from signing veteran artists in favor of far less accomplished youngsters, it is refreshing to see Steve Kuhn finally leading his first Blue Note release. This live CD taped at New York City's Birdland, with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Al Foster, marks a reunion for this trio, ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Live At Birdland

Read "Live At Birdland" reviewed by Geoff Mirelowitz


If Steve Kuhn's name does not immediately spring to mind when considering the most talented pianists on the jazz scene today, this album should change that. Live at Birdland, with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Al Foster confirms that jazz is first and foremost an art of live performance. This disc also demonstrates how the magic ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Live at Birdland

Read "Live at Birdland" reviewed by J Hunter


You have to crank the volume hard to hear Bill Evans' whisper-soft intro to Miles' “So What" on Kind of Blue (Columbia, 1959). When you hear it, though, you know something special this way comes. Steve Kuhn comes from the same school of subtlety as Evans, and Kuhn's one-finger opening to his trio's Blue Note debut, ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Pavane for a Dead Princess

Read "Pavane for a Dead Princess" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger


Anything that pianist Steve Kuhn does is likely to be beautifully executed and tasteful, and Pavane for a Dead Princess is no exception. Here, he and his empathic collaborators David Finck (bass) and Billy Drummond (drums) address themselves to the stock classical repertoire, jazzing up eleven popular pieces from Debussy, Rachmaninov, Tchaikowsky, Grieg, Brahms and Chopin. ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Qui

Read "Qui" reviewed by John Kelman


Why an album takes over five years from recording to release is curious, especially when it's from an established artist like pianist Steve Kuhn--perennially underappreciated to be sure, but not without a certain cachet. Still, finding a home for a session can sometimes be a challenge, and at the end of the day, whether it was ...

Steve Kuhn Trio: Qui

Read "Qui" reviewed by Joshua Weiner


Let's be up front about it: I'm not a huge fan of Latin music, including Latin jazz. No offense to the many fine artists or the teeming millions that are into this stuff; I'm just a northern, Arctic Circle kind of guy. Rio bathing beauties are great and all, but, call me crazy, I like Minnesota ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
