Andy Kahn Andy Kahn

Andy Kahn is committed to preserving America’s unique musical art form, “JAZZ and the STANDARD SONG.” For more than 40 years, he has researched works of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George Gershwin and other American songwriters who provided the foundation for Swing and Jazz, America’s enduring unique contribution to music and the arts. Andy performs his “Music by Intention” concerts in theaters and nightclubs. He lectures at educational institutions about owning and operating a recording studio and music production.

Andy weaves his musical spell on audiences attending his educational and entertainment events. He has raised impressive sums for aids support, non-profits and charitable foundations. Andy has entertained at major jazz festivals and in intimate settings, interacting closely with his audiences. His affable personality and obvious love for the music he plays and sings has enthralled audiences at annual benefits for a museum in western Maine as well as in Europe and South America onboard cruise ships. Offering programs for all ages, he performs standard songs and jazz composed in America, musical genres surviving nearly a hundred years. Andy adds charisma and charm into his vast repertoire, offering anecdotes about American composers whose intention was to help shape a country’s ideals while instilling qualities and attitudes in the lives of its people.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
