Richard Kahn Releases New Album: Jazz 88ist, 8/2/09

Richard Kahn’s newest album, Jazz 88ist, features timeless jazz standards of the twentieth century.

Nothing compares to live music. Whether at a small jazz club, hotel lobby, or backyard barbeque, the unspoken rules of musical engagement offer a level of interaction ripe with fresh opportunities for elegant musical conversation, spontaneous improvisation, and deft styling. This degree of audience involvement infuses the performer with freedom and a level of inspiration often lacking in a larger, formal environment. With proper care, design, and patience, each piece can develop into its own little jewel, complete with its special set of hand-crafted bevels and sparkling optical reflections. The piano music in Jazz 88ist evokes a setting of a small West Coast jazz club, one suitable for some of the most requested songs of the last century. Toward this goal, each piece was performed entirely in one take, with no interruptions and no editing.

Richard Kahn Releases New Album: Richard Kahn at the Piano, 12/16/08

Richard Kahn’s solo piano album, Richard Kahn at the Piano, features easy listening pop songs of the 1960s and 1970s.

The 1960s and 1970s are known as the decades of the singer/songwriter. It was generally accepted that the person or persons who penned the music were the same as those performing it. In this way, each songwriter could inject his or her own personal artistic flair into each piece. The list of contributors to this timeless decade of music is filled with some of the most celebrated performers of all time: John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Billy Joel, Burt Bacharach, Jim Croce, and David Benoit, just to a name a few. With great respect, pianist, arranger, and composer Richard Kahn shares his interpretations of some of the greatest songs ever written in his newly released album Richard Kahn at the Piano.
