With a career of a half-century and counting, Steve Kuhn has earned his place as one of the most lyrical and affecting pianists in jazz, with an unfailingly beautiful touch and a sophisticated sense of swing. An ECM Records veteran of 35 years, Kuhn will be joined by his longtime rhythm ace Joey Baron and veteran bass stalwart Buster Williams. For this occasion, Kuhn will be joined by special guest Devin Phillips in a nod to Kuhn’s brief 1960 association with John Coltrane. Kuhn’s credits are impeccable and range from associations with Stan Getz, Chet Baker and Coleman Hawkins to Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Kenny Dorham.
“…pristine clarity and keenly calibrated force has long been one of Kuhn’s defining traits” Boston Globe
