Bischoff Bischoff

Kurt Bischoff has been playing drums for over 55 years. He played in numerous rock and jazz groups during high school and studied music theory and composition at the University of California, Davis with Stan Lunetta, Larry Austin, John Cage and others. During his college years, he performed with the Sacramento Symphony, the Camelia City Orchestra and the rock groups Gumbo Ya-Ya and Opus Fluke. He was also a founding member of the Hyborean performance group Amra/Arma with which he performed at the International Carnival of Experimental Sound in London, England in 1972. In 1988, Kurt and his family moved from California to the Pacific Northwest where he continued playing in various jazz groups (including a tenure with Richard Thompson and Harry Holbert). He is currently writing and performing with the fusion jazz group Mission Drift.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
