Steve Kuhn piano, David Wong bas, Billy Drummond drums

Lyrical, classically trained pianist from New York who collaborated with jazz legends such as John Coltrane and Art Farmer. ‘A harmonically sophisticated player’ (Penguin Guide to Jazz).

‘Few other pianists, regardless of genre, can tease such an evocative range of timbres from their instrument,’ says Jazziz Magazine. ‘Kuhn’s lower register is as dark and rich as Belgian chocolate, and his upper register has the light, translucent quality of ice cold champagne.’ The American pianist, who has released many albums on the ECM label, will appear at the Bimhuis with double bassist David Wong en drummer Billy Drummond.

Steve Kuhn was born in Brooklyn, New York. At a young age he was educated in the style of Rachmaninoff and Horowitz by renowned pedagogue Margaret Chaloff. Since the late 1950s he has developed a modern and timeless sound which has inspired many young piano trios. Alongside his career as a band leader and composer he has accompanied many jazz greats including John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Sheila Jordan en Stan Getz.
