George Kahn Music Featured on "Men Of A Certain Age"

I had one of my songs featured on cable TV (TNT network) the other week – you can view it here:



TNT | MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE . This wry drama stars Emmy® winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Golden Globe® winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT’s Salem’s Lot). It marks a return to series television for Romano, who created MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE with Everybody Loves Raymond Emmy winner Mike Royce. The two serve as executive producers, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman. George Kahn ’s composition, “Wes’ Coast” from his Cover Up! recording is featured in this episode during the house-warming party, about 3:30 into this part of the episode. Check it out…

New Album News - Off To The Mastering Lab

The New Album Project 2010 is in the works!
The music is off to the mastering lab, and the album title and artwork are in the preparation phase. There are 6 new songs featured on the NEW 2-CD set from George, to be released in June 2010. Four are new originals, plus a new rendition of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, and a haunting version of “My Funny Valentine” performed as a duet with George on piano and Andy Suzuki on sax. Some of the new tracks were performed “live in the studio” with a power quartet of Andy Suzuki, George Kahn, Karl Vincent and M. B. Gordy. One song features the wonderful Luba Mason singing an Original Bossa Nova, “Sombras de Noite (Night Shadows)”. The album also features a previously unreleased song with Tierney Sutton on vocals.

The balance of the new album consists of 20 George Kahn originals, culled from the last 10 years of recordings. It will be a feast for the ears, 26 songs, over two and a half hours of music! More news next month...

ALSO: I am please to announce that the song "Wes' Coast" will appear in this week's episode of the new Ray Romano show "Men Of A Certain Age" on TNT - I hope you can check it out!

Favorite Websites for February
ART: My son Benji turned me on to this amazing artist that works only with Lego blocks:
MUSIC: Here is a blast from the past, and a proof of the danger of the Internet – I played in a punk/new wave band with Richard Haxton in the 70’s called “FUN WITH ANIMALS”. Weird Al Yanovic just chose their song “The Test of Love and Sex” as “The #1 Most Underrated Funny Song Ever!” about 200,000 people have checked it out now – join the FUN:
HUMOR: My other son, Evan, inherited my love of the absurd and he turned me on to a bizarre youtube video where an artist named Day Job Orchestra has dubbed strange words into the mouth of Star Trek characters – you have to see this to believe it, and be sitting down or you will fall over
