When a young musician’s sources of inspiration are jazz greats like Dave Brubeck, Ramsey Lewis, Joe Sample, Vince Guaraldi and Wynton Kelly, you’d figure that his own music would turn out to be pretty special...and in the case of jazz pianist and composer George Kahn, you’d be right. His music captures the feel of the West Coast Jazz scene of the 50’s & 60’s, but with a contemporary edge. George has incorporated many styles including bebop, smooth jazz, blues, Latin and New Orleans rhythms.
In 2018 George Kahn Trio "Straight Ahead" was released, and became one of the top 100 jazz albums of the year based on radio play (Jazzweek.com)
In late 2020, The George Kahn Quartet released “DreamCatcher” and it spent 15 weeks on the jazz radio charts, reaching #5 nationwide.
Kahn’s music has been featured on many TV shows and advertisements, including “Men Of A Certain Age”, “ER," “The Young and the Restless,” and “How William Shatner Changed the World."
Kahn plays "classic" jazz, in the style of late 50's and early 60's Blue Note, Riverside and Prestige recordings. His favorite pianists are Bill Evans, Red Garland, Dave Brubeck, and Herbie Hancock. The repertoire runs from the Great American Songbook to contemporary pop tunes re-imagined in a jazz style, to originals.
