The George Kahn Quartet

Air Date: 4/25/2021 

As I listened to George Kahn's latest release, DreamCatcher, I was struck by the superb integration between Mr. Kahn's piano and Pat Kelley's guitar. You'll hear it especially on the song EVA from this CD, during the first half of hour two on the Sunday Jazz Brunch.

David Hughes (bass)  Pat Kelley (guitar), George Kahn (piano), Alex Acuna (drums)
The album is an L.A.-based session featuring artists who regularly make music for films and television. Kahn’s own music has been used on TV shows and advertisements, including ER, The Young and the Restless, Men Of A Certain Age, and How William Shatner Changed the World.

DreamCatcher features a nice mix of old standards along with newer works, some originals and some by other artists. There is a even a James Taylor song on the album, Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight.

I have noticed that James Taylor is getting some attention in the jazz world lately. You'll note during hour 1 the track Gorilla by Lori Bell and Ron Satterfield. This is a fine CD that any jazz lover can enjoy, but I think James Taylor fans will also like this version. In fact, I like to say that Mr. Satterfield sounds more like James Taylor than does James Taylor!

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you enjoy the next edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
