Born in Austria, Michael has graced our shores on several occasions now, and his exceptional piano skills were well appreciated by the Dungeon Jazz audience. Maybe we could hope to see the Michael Kahr Quartet in the future. Check out his website

Itâs tempting to think there is a European lightness to this jazz, though it lacks nothing in drive or energy- check out the heated round of solos â¦
Shane Nichols, "The Australian Financial Review", 06.12.2002.

Kahrâs writing has the quality of freshness and vitality while working within the paradigm of what we think of as mainstreamâ¦

â¦Kahrâs sparkling eloquence, matched by bullet-proof technique. His arrival here is our gain, definitely.

â¦the pianist demonstrates his technical ability as well as an intense, focused flow of ideas
Andreas Felber. âConcertoâ, Austria, Feb/March 2003.

Michael Kahr is not only a good pianist but also a very talented trumpet and flugelhorn player.

Michael Kahrâ¦grooves, or tries his hand at a jazz mambo in an accomplished way.
Bak. âJazzzeitâ, Austria, April 2003.

Consequently, the Michael Kahr Quartet proves its versatility and this is worth hearing. Graz is still going strong concerning the leading role in Austrian jazz.
Bak. âJazzzeitâ, Austria, April 2003.

Stories is an auspicious début from Austrian pianist/horn player Michael Kahr, who now spends much of his time in Sydney, Australia, and is making his mark on the vibrant scene there. Having studied with both British pianist John Taylor and New Zealander Mike Nock, one would expect to hear a confluence of European impressionism and a solid rooting in the American tradition, and thatâs exactly what you get.
John Kelman, âhttps://www.tradebit.comâ, Canada, January 2004.

â¦the young pianist and trumpeter echoes the old masterâs (Joe Zawinul) sense of originality and ingenuity on this varied and daring mix of tunes that will grab the attention of any discerning jazz fan.
John Stevenson, âhttps://www.tradebit.comâ, London, UK, January 2004

This is a group who takes you on an exploration to the source, essence, and meaning of jazz.
