Over the years the jazz repertoire has been substantially
enriched by the
inclusion of some of the world?s most enduring popular
songs. And when it comes to performing jazz versions
of these great standards, Paul Kuhn has consistently
shown himself to be a master of the genre.
His latest release ? Unforgettable Golden Jazz Classics
on the IN+OUT label ? provides eloquent testimony to
this. What is fundamental to Paul Kuhn?s interpretations
is that they are totally in keeping with the original
mood and lyrical theme of the compositions.
The legendary songwriters represented on the album
are Hoagy Carmichael & Mitchell Parish (One Morning
In May), Irving Berlin (Putting On The Ritz and The
Song Is Ended), Rogers & Hammerstein II (This Nearly
Was Mine), Cole Porter (I Love Paris and I Concentrate
On You), Kurt Weill & Ogden Nash (Speak Low), Benny
Carter & Spencer Williams (When Lights Are Low),
Walter Donaldson (You?re Driving Me Crazy), Django
Reinhardt (Nuages, for which Spencer Williams wrote
a lyric ? It?s The Bluest Kind Of Blue), Hugh Martin
and Ralph Blane (The Girl Next Door), Johnny Mandel
(Where Do You Start?), Herb Magidson & Allie Wrubel
(Gone With The Wind), Victor Young & Edward Heyman
(When I Fall In Love) and Johnny Burke & Jimmy van
Heusen (Here?s That Rainy Day).
There is also a track by another esteemed composer
? Paul Kuhn ? who wrote Griff in tribute to the late
Johnny Griffin, with whom he played in Ronnie Scott?s
Club in May 2008.
The way Paul celebrates the great standards on this
album would have brought smiles of deep satisfaction
to the faces of the composers, if they were still around
to hear them.
