KURT RIBAK

"Soulful, funky and accessible original jazz" “Music for the jazz impurist” is how veteran Berkeley, California bassist, bandleader, and composer Kurt Ribak describes his work. His music is danceable yet also excites jazz fans. Kurt Ribak - bass/ vocals Greg Sankovitch - keys Lincoln Adler - sax TBA - drums Grooves range from swing, reggae, and bossa nova to bolero, boogaloo, greasy funk, and South African-spiced soca. Ribak’s compositions reflect the influence of Charles Mingus, Cannonball Adderley, and Abdullah Ibrahim. The sound we go for is this: Charles Mingus meets the Meters. They play at Duke Ellington's house, and Thelonious Monk and Cachao sit in once in a while.
