Kurt says what he’s trying for in his music is “Charles Mingus meets The Meters. They go to Duke Ellington’s house to jam, and Cachao and Thelonious Monk sit in.”
Kurt’s albums feature his own compositions, which are original yet accessible.
Kurt met pianist Greg Sankovich at UC Berkeley’s UC Jazz Ensembles and reconnected there with fellow San Francisco Boys Chorus alumnus, saxophonist Lincoln Adler. Greg and Lincoln co-produced his last record, “I Got One More!” and are co-producing “onward” – his fifth recording as a leader – currently in progress.
After a battle with tendinitis, Kurt won scholarships to Berklee College of Music. There he learned he loved composition and songwriting.
In June 2012 Kurt was in an auto accident, seriously injuring his left hand and forearm. Thirteen operations and five years later he has resumed playing, much to the surprise of some of his surgeons. Kurt notes, “When I was hurt I learned how many people loved me, cared about me. That really helped me get back to playing.”
