On this album, Steve Kuhn: Seasons of Romance, the Jazz pianist presents his sonorous music and passionate playing along with Tom Harrell, Bob Mintzer, Al Foster, and George Mraz. From the heartrending and definitive version of Quincy Jones' The Pawnbroker, which features Bob Mintzer's soulful saxophone musings, and the delicate and pensive rendering of Romance, to the moving portrait of lost love highlighting both Kuhn's mastery of piano tone and his harmonic subtlety and sensitivity on Good Morning, Heartache, this recording from the Postcards Record Label explores all the nuances of love and all the seasons of romance we experience.

 

"Kuhn's piano work has more than just vast fluency, harmonic

imagination, and subtle intelligence; it has genuine grace. Best

 of all, his firm yet sensitive touch draws a luminous tone from

his instrument…"                                                        -  Stereophile

 

"3 ½ Stars… Kuhn's stirring, samba-like "Clotilde" and "Good

 Morning, Heartache" are standout tracks, making the best use of

 the pianist's interactive emphatic left hand."             - Downbeat Magazine

 

The legendary sound that emanates from the pristine touch of Steve Kuhn’s piano is an undeniable part of the lasting Jazz culture. Having performed in a band with Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman, as the original pianist in the John Coltrane Quartet, or gigging in the United States and across Europe with notable Jazz masters such as Art Farmer, Stan Getz, and Chet Baker, Kuhn’s contribution to Jazz is undeniable. With this lush, passionate, and adept recording, entitled Steve Kuhn: Seasons of Romance (also available on CD), the masterful, wistful, and thoughtful musicality of this underappreciated pianist is eternally captured.

 

"Everything on this disk simply sings and swings"
