THE KURT RIBAK QUARTET

Description: Description: "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
Carrie Jahde - 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.

"...Kurt’s ability to take you on a journey from the deepest waters of the Caribbean to the funky alleys of the urban jungle in one listening makes him a truly gifted original in my book." - Chris Cortez, KCSM FM
