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.
