The Jazz Session #76: Steve Kuhn

steveKuhnHappy 76th birthday to the great Steve Kuhn! Jason Crane interviews the pianist for Jason’s great podcast The Jazz Session. Kuhn speaks about his (then) new new album, Mostly Coltrane (ECM, 2009), which pays tribute to John Coltrane, with whom Kuhn worked for several weeks in the early 60s. In the interview, Kuhn talks about Coltrane, the Lenox School of Jazz, his composing methods, and the support he received early on from Bill Evans. He also discusses the sacrifices he made in pursuit of his musical vision.
