Live in Paris, 1970

The Steve Kuhn Trio & The Gary Burton Quartet Live in Paris, 1970


This 1970 recording, shot as part of the French emission "Jazz Harmony," features two bright talents on the international jazz scene. Steve Kuhn is first up, leading a trio comprised of the French maestro Jean-François Jenny Clark on bass and the important jazz-rock drummer Aldo Romano. Kuhn was only a teenager when he played the Boston club circuit alongside Coleman Hawkins and Chet Baker, before graduating to sideman with the likes of Stan Getz and (briefly) John Coltrane. A jazz pianist with both classical and avant-garde leanings, during the performance he admits that he finds it difficult to play his music in the States, preferring "the musical climate in Europe."
