Biography

Joachim Kurt Kühn, 15 March 1944, Leipzig, Germany. Between the ages of five to his mid-teens, Kühn took lessons in classical piano and composing, then became a professional jazz musician. He set up his own trio in 1962, which lasted until 1966, when he established a quartet with his brother, clarinettist Rolf Kühn. When this band ended in 1969 he led his own group in Paris, until joining the Jean-Luc Ponty Experience in 1971. He left Ponty in 1972 to co-lead a group with Eje Thelin. Since then he has frequently worked solo, but has also been a member of the acclaimed Tony Oxley Quintet. While he performed work which might be categorized as new age in the mid-90s, his work in the new millennium demonstrated that Kühn can still play in a tougher fashion.
