George Kahn / Press

“A major force in the Los Angeles jazz community since the late 1990s”

“George Kahn’s originals are intriguing, including the title track, “Cover Up,” which seems tailor made for a television drama, and prompts thoughts of the Eddie Harris title, “Theme In Search Of A Movie.””

“The strongest tracks are Kahn originals. On “Wes’ Coast,” Kelley’s celebratory guitar octaves and Fumo’s piercing muted horn conjure an imaginary meeting between Wes Montgomery and Miles Davis.”

“Kahn's nimble soloing is a revelation...”

“Kahn's an economical player, like Horace Silver or George Duke...”

All About Jazz

“…[Kahn] shows on every track that he can sell a song.”

“Overall, this is an excellent outing well-worth exploring.”

“Throughout …Compared to What?, Kahn is in the background, supplying sensitive solos when required, as on the evocative "Alice in Wonderland," or pushing the rhythm section to it's funky limits, as on the title track.”

George Harris - All About Jazz


Jazz Programmer - WRTI-FM, Philadelphia, PA

“Kahn seems most at home in the trio setting, which is where he seems to be most inspired. He takes Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love" and turns it from a rocker into a snapper. Keeping with the 60's his version of "Eleanor Rigby" brings out the loneliness of the melody that would make McCartney smile.”

“There is a constant that runs through his music: It's always hip.”

Alfredo Cruz - WBGO, KKJZ

“It's guys like pianist George Kahn that make me glad I live on the West Coast, and can take in the local jazz scene. This latest release has Kahn leading a band that includes the stellar foundational trio with Alex Acuna (d & p) and Brian Bromberg (b)…”

“…occasionally reminiscent of Dave Brubeck. … [Kahn] 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.”

Don Heckman, 2002 - L. A. Times - Freedom Vessel Review

“This is a trio that plays like they grew up together. He's always somewhere in town; make it a point to see this overlooked star.”
