Jim Kunkel  ... is a Solo performing Jazz, Contemporary music.

Versatile guitarist Jim Kunkel has composed music for independent films and documentaries such as the Aspects of the Arts series profiling poet Dan Masterson and artist Frederick Franck. As leader and sideman, he has performed and recorded since the late seventies, including a quintet that performed many of how own innovative compositions. Jim has a lengthy list of musicians who have studied with him over the years, many of whom have gone on to enjoy a successful music career.

Jim's newest project is Becoming Human, a newly formed trio (and sometimes quartet), which performs music composed by Jim and bassist Mickey Kopchak. With Jim, Mickey, and vocalist/guitarist/percussionist Marji Zintz, they explore and inhabit many genres across the musical spectrum, from folk to jazz, modal to avant-garde, spiritual to classical to Brazilian. They honor the space and each other’s unique and evolving “voice,” creating and holding a fertile ground for conversation, interplay, improvisation, and emotion.
