RECORDINGS - We have four recordings.  The newest record, "i got one more!" is played on KCSM-FM, San Diego's Jazz 88, PRI's "Jazz After Hours" (syndicated on 70 stations), KPFA, KZSC, KRCB, "The Creative Source" and more.

The band includes Greg Sankovich, Ross Wilson, Lincoln Adler, Alan Hall, and Michaelle Goerlitz.  Guests are Tony Marcus, Jinx Jones, and Jeff Cressman.  I think it's our best record yet.  It was recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley by Adam Munoz and produced by Greg, Lincoln, and myself.

POSTPONED Kurt Ribak Quartet - Original Jazz
Friday, January 27 - 8 PM to 9:30 PM
Impulse Room
Walnut Creek, CA

This is a new venue that should be opening soon before our gig there.  Greg Sankovich keyboards, Lincoln Adler sax.

Friday, January 27, 8 PM to 10:15 PM
Kurt Ribak Quartet - Original Jazz
707 Marina Vista Ave., Martinez, CA 94553

We just got a show at Armando's!  Armando's is a favorite room of ours, both for performing and for seeing other bands.  Great sound, comfortable, intimate, unpretentious yet filled with interesting stuff.  Greg Sankovich on keyboards, Lincoln Adler on sax, Michaelle Goerlitz on percussion, Kurt on bass.  He may also sing a couple songs.
Armando's is a quick drive from most of the East Bay, and parking is a cinch.  It's way quicker getting door to door here from the East Bay than to SF.

Great beer, excellent pizzas and salads, and a beer garden!  There are heat lamps, so even in January you shouldn't be too cold.

"...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, Announcer, KCSM-FM
