I like to think of the jazz piano trio as the "gateway drug" into jazz.  Think Ramsey Lewis Trio, Vince Guaraldi, Bill Evans... Now for the first time I am producing a trio album with the amazing Alex Acuna and Lyman Medeiros, and we want YOU to be part of making it happen.
We have recorded four songs already, but we can't complete the project without you.  The campaign runs only for the month of July, and once you make a pledge we'll be sending you updates about the progress, extra videos, etc.  You can even join me as a guest at the recording session, or come to a PRIVATE HOUSE PARTY in August to celebrate the album with the George Kahn Trio.

Please go to the website and be one of the first to pledge - it's fun!
There are numerous ways to get involved, but whether your pledge is $10 or $1,000, it does not matter - right now it is all about the eyeballs!

-pick a reward

-share the love on Facebook, Twitter, or other social network platforms
Thanks!  The journey has begun...

New Newsletter, New Video, New Request

Posted: 3 June 2017, 10:59 am - SECRETS FROM THE JAZZ GHETTO

The June newsletter is out, with a new video, great jazz shows for June, and other news


Here is the new video, Dreamin' by George Kahn

Would you like to be a "first follower"? This is the theory that attracting an adherent or believer to a new kind of initiative is the first step toward beginning a movement that might seem unusual or out-of-step with the general population. Here's a brief video from Derek Sivers about the First Follower.  
I am looking for people who want to help launch the Kickstarter Campaign by committing to back the project the day it launches.  Interested?  Email me and I'll add you to the FIRST FOLLOWER list!
