Opening Act: Pat Senatore
George Kahn: 9:30pm
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 '50s & '60s, but with a contemporary edge.
He has released eight self-produced CDs. His 2010 release — SECRETS FROM THE JAZZ GHETTO, — is a 2-CD set featuring seven new tracks and a retrospective of George’s original compositions. The newest release, George Kahn Jazz & Blues Revue finds George teaming up with three of the best singers in Los Angeles to create a musical revue that spans the decades from '40s era Andrew Sisters to R+B hits of the '80s by The Pointer Sisters, Etta James and Aretha Franklin
Kahn’s music has been featured on many TV shows and advertisements, including Lexus, “ER," “The Young and the Restless,” and “How William Shatner Changed the World." In December 2012, George also received a Certificate of Recognition from the City of Los Angeles for his dedication to helping end homelessness in Los Angeles.
