Album Description

Jazz stalwarts George Kahn and Pat Kelley have joined forces to create DreamCatcher, a new 12-song set being released on November 6, 2020. Their piano/guitar quartet sound is so simpatico, it was only a matter of time before they would put out an album. DreamCatcher brings us standards ranging from Stardust (1927) to Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight (1972) as well as a few new originals. As with all George Kahn albums, there are plenty of subtle tributes to the Jazz greats, like Dave Brubeck, The Modern Jazz Quartet, Wes Montgomery/ Wynton Kelly, and Bill Evans/Jim Hall. It was quite a ride to create this album during a global pandemic! Recording began in January 2020, before there was much thought of the Coronavirus. A successful Kickstarter campaign in March and April carried the project forward, but Covid caused a delay in recording the last 5 tracks until George, Pat and David felt safe enough to gather again in the studio in July. Alex Acuña delivered his drum parts virtually, but you’d swear they were all jamming together “like it was 2019”. George and Pat were aiming for a late-night, smoky bourbon and ballad vibe for this record, and it delivers. The styles may vary, but the feel is solid and groovy.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
