Album Review

Pianist George Kahn's enjoyable release alternates between straight-ahead features for Justo Almario (who is in great form on tenor during "On Green Dolphin Street") and trumpeter John Fumo, Latin romps and showcases for the leader's trio. The changes in moods and grooves keep the proceedings consistently interesting and colorful. Eric Marienthal has two guest appearances, helping out on "Compared to What" (a particularly funky version that features Courtney Lemmon's vocal) and his own "Too Much Sax." Bassist Brian Bromberg has a few very fluent solos along the way, Alejandro "Alex" Acuña's versatility uplifts the material, and Kahn's piano stars on "Alice in Wonderland" and his own "The Hero's Journey." Overall, this is an excellent outing well-worth exploring.

A giant step forward

A music composition major at Brandeis University, Southern California-based pianist GEORGE KAHN brings a classically trained sensibility to his jazz writing. On his latest CD, ...Compared To What? (Playing Records), he also brings a talented supporting cast in woodwind players Eric Marienthal and Justo Almario, trumpeter John Fumo, bassist Brian Bromberg, and drummer/percussionist Alex Acuna. Kahn’s arranging skills stand out on the cover of Gene McDaniel’s under-the-radar title composition, as well as Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” and standards like “On Green Dolphin Street.” But the featured original “Gnome Sayin’” holds its own among such classics, thanks to the melodic accompaniment and soloing of Kahn with his all-star ensemble.
