Album Notes

Melodic jazz piano trio, music from the heart,direct to the hands. No drum machines, no synthesizers, playing live,real, in the moment.Music to listen to over and over again.Creating a time and place that is new, yet familiar.

George Kahn is a jazz pianist who has played in and around Los Angeles for the last 20 years. His current group, "Party of Four" features M.B. Gordy on drums, Karl Vincent on Bass and Eric Marienthal on saxes. They will play anywhere that people will pay them to show up! George's misson in life is to return jazz to the glory days before synthesizers and drum machines roamed the earth.

George Kahn - Piano, Billy Higgins - Drums, Richard Reid - Bass, Eric Marienthal - Saxes, Wayne Bergeron - Trumpet and Flugelhorn

George Kahn review: published 4/26/00 Los Angeles Time
by Don Heckman,(special to the Times)
"Pianist George Kahn is one of the jazz explorers of MP3 music delivery over the internet. Although his first, self-released CD, "Out Of Time", is available from, he also has actively, and with considerable success, promoted his music via the MP3 channels.

On Monday, in a one-night performance at Catalina Bar and Grill, Kahn made a relatively rare live apprearance, leading a first-rate ensemble that included saxaphonist Eric Marienthal, trumpeter Bobby Rodriguez, bassist Karl Vincent and drummer M.B. Gordy.

Kahn describes his music as a reflection of the 60's sounds from Blue Note and Prestige... More likely associations, from a listener's point of view, might have been West Coast jazz of the 50's, with a sprinkling of '80s new age thrown in for good measure...

There's no questioning Kahn's choice of musicians, however. Rodriguez, as always, balanced his fiery high note trumpet excursions with the sweeter sounds of his fluegelhorn (especially on a ballad, "Say Goodbye"). Marienthal's fusion and smooth jazz associations were completely set aside in a dark-toned tenor sax romp through the blues. And the rhythm team of Vincent and Gordy were exceptionally supportive, crisply capturing the sometimes disjunct rhythm accents of Kahn's music.

Kahn's piano work was...occasionally reminiscent of Dave Brubeck; it also verged dangerously close to George Winston, especially during a rhapsodic solo showcase number. But he deserves credit for his continuing exploration of the growing number of alternative delivery channels available to jazz artists who have not yet made a major-label connection."

This CD just edges it over Freedom Vessel for me but both are 5 star albums in my opinion. Recording quality is excellent as the instruments can clearly be heard when playing at the same time, not the case on many CDs

D. Zaslove

WOW! For a first jazz outing, George Kahn certainly put together a superb band. What an interesting choice, to mix the traditional jazz brilliance of Billy Higgins on drums with the smooth-jazzish stylings of Eric Marienthal. And it all comes out great! With the passing of Billy Higgins this year (2001) it adds a little bittersweet to the mix, but this is a quality recording that showed that Billy Higgins was going strong right up to the end. Richard Reid is a perfect compliment on bass to Billy's polyrhythmic drum parts. George plays in the pocket, bringing to mind other "groove" oriented pianists of the 50's and 60's. This is one album I can listen to over and over again, and so will you!


These Guys Are Having Too Much Fun!
Review by Phrygia, from
OK, we are sickened by the amount of fun these guys are having. What’s the matter with desolate guilt ridden music? Well, to tell you the truth, it sucks, so here we bring you some brassy jazz that wipes the cool off the mirror and hazes it up with something incredibly hot. George Kahn is what the teeming listeners would consider a ‘mature’ composer and musician, in the sense that he incorporates what we here in the Land of Phrygia Musical Appreciation and Phenomenal Artists College feel to be the most intense, if not the most difficult, music to master in the world. Classical music has cadence, structure, and is imprisoned or freed by the conductor. But when it comes to pure agility and stamina, Acid Jazz outshines any other genre in the abilities of the artists. That’s where the crucial element comes in? Is it credible? For George, we would have to say no, it’s not that it is credible - it's incredible


Very smooth! Great sound!!
Recommend highly! Buy !!! Band very well blended!!
