DC JazzFest: Kevin Cordt Quartet
Born in 1963 in Wichita, Kansas, Kevin Cordt was raised in the Washington, DC area. Kevin studied trumpet at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and planned to have a career as an orchestral trumpet player. After doing work with the Pittsburg and Philadelphia Orchestras along with many regional orchestras and opera companies, he had the chance to work extensively with composer Karlheinz Stockhausen (check out Samstag aus Licht on Deutsche Grammaphone). Soon after, he took a job as a ceremonial bugler with the United States Air Force. It was during that period that he became interested in jazz, pop and other forms of more contemporary American music.
