Jazz pianist George Kahn feels his fans are ready for a change, so he formed the Jazz & Blues Revue. More than just another jazz ensemble this time around, the Jazz & Blues Revue brings three of the best singers in Los Angeles together to perform unique arrangements of jazz standards along with other well-known songs, in a wonderful blend of Jazz, R&B and Soul.

Singer Courtney Lemmon has appeared on several of George’s albums and most recently released her debut CD “STAY WITH ME”, teaming her with Grammy Award winning Producer Michael Acosta. Gina Saputo was among seven musicians chosen by Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, and Wayne Shorter to study at the Thelonius Monk Institute. She performs regularly and also teaches singing at the Musicians Institute. Crystal Starr has performed as a backup singer for Ariana Grande, as well as legendary greats Smokey Robinson, John Legend and Joss Stone. She recently performed on Broadway in “Baby It’s You!”.

Renowned musicians Eric Marienthal (Sax), Dr. Bobby Rodriguez (trumpet), Lyman Medeiros (Bass) and M. B. Gordy (Drums/Percussion) are featured on the new album, along with Special Guests, Pat Kelley on Guitar and Chuck Manning on Sax.

The album has new, creative arrangements of jazz and blues standards like Cantaloupe Island, Rock Me Baby, Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar, God Bless The Child, Summertime and Afro Blue.

After a very successful 2014 Kickstarter campaign, the Jazz & Blues Revue album will be available for digital download beginning November 18th, with physical CD sales beginning October 21st.

George Kahn Jazz & Blues Revue leads off the release of the new album with a special performance at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, CA on Wednesday October 22nd. Tickets are $15.00, plus a 2 drink minimum. Doors open at 7:00 PM and music beginning at 8:00 PM. CDs will be available for purchase at the concert. We suggest to RSVP for best

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
