Percussionist Culver has brought the Latin-infused ‘clave’ rhythms of his Kuchina outfit every year from the Bill Bell Jazz & Heritage Festival’s beginning in 2014, including headlining last year’s festival in a five-piece lineup. This year the lineup has a new wrinkle: Kuchina Jazz will perform as a trio featuring Corey Kendrick on piano and Andy Crawford on bass.
Kendrick is a pianist, composer and educator and serves as the director of instrumental music at Black Hawk College. His recordings since 2016 have been praised from many quarters, and he was described by John Ephland of Downbeat magazine as a “very accomplished, highly gifted jazz pianist” with “a patient, maturing voice.”
Crawford is also an educator as well as excellent musician, and teaches at Knox College in Galesburg. He has played with several outfits in the area, including the Defenestration Quartet at Seminary St. Pub, Cassie and Friends, the Swing Cats and the Lubricats.
