$25 For a Great Show and a Great Cause

A recent study showed that Los Angeles is in the Top 3 of non-affordable places to buy a home in America.

The cost of housing has soared in the last few years as the real estate market has come back, but people's income has not kept pace.

Rather than feel helpless about this inequality, once a year I donate my money, time and talent, and throw a Jazz Fundraiser Party for PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) Ventures, a non-profit that builds affordable housing for the homeless in Los Angeles.

Please join me tomorrow night (Wednesday 12/10) at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood.  My company, Mortgage Capital Partners, underwrites the band, so ALL the money raised at the door goes directly to PATH Ventures.   The all-star band this years features Dr. Bobby Rodriguez, Chuck Manning, Pat Kelley, Lyman Medeiros, MB Gordy, and the fabulous singers of the Jazz & Blues Revue: Courtney Lemmon, Gina Saputo and Crystal Starr.

A batch of $25 tickets have just been released (with half-price tickets available for students with ID).  Please RSVP on line or call Catalina's at  (323) 466-2210  and reserve your seats before the show sells out. I'll see you tomorrow night!

"George Kahn's Jazz & Blues Revue, a vocal jazz statement that begs to be heard. With great vocals, superb instrumentals and an exciting selection of music, this is vocal jazz at its best"

The George Kahn Jazz & Blues Revue album - get your copy today!

FEATURING SINGERS COURTNEY LEMMON, GINA SAPUTO AND CRYSTAL STARR
Jazz Pianist George Kahn felt his fans were ready for a change, so he formed the Jazz & Blues Revue.  More than just another jazz ensemble this time around, the Jazz & Blues Revue brings three of the best singers in Los Angeles together to perform unique arrangements of jazz standards along with other well-known songs, in a wonderful blend of Jazz, R&B and Soul.
The album has 13 new, creative arrangements of jazz and blues standards like Cantaloupe Island, Rock Me Baby, Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar, God Bless The Child, Summertime and Afro Blue.
 
Singer Courtney Lemmon has appeared on several of George’s albums and most recently released her debut CD “STAY WITH ME”, teaming her with Grammy Award winning Producer Michael Acosta.  Gina Saputo was among seven musicians chosen by Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, and Wayne Shorter to study at the Thelonius Monk Institute. She performs regularly and also teaches singing at the Musicians Institute.  Crystal Starr has performed as a backup singer for Ariana Grande, as well as legendary greats Smokey Robinson, John Legend and Joss Stone.  She recently performed on Broadway in “Baby It’s You!”.
Renowned musicians Eric Marienthal (Sax), Dr. Bobby Rodriguez (trumpet),  Lyman Medeiros (Bass) and M. B. Gordy (Drums/Percussion) are featured on the new album,  along with Special Guests, Pat Kelley on Guitar and Chuck Manning on Sax.
 Available on CDBABY and AMAZON
