Steve Kuhn was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York; he began his love for jazz at a very young age. At the time when he was physically able, he was the one putting records onto the turntable and playing them. By the age of five and with the advice of his father, he studied piano. As a teenager and high school student in Boston, he worked with the likes of Coleman Hawkins, Vic Dickenson, Chet Baker, and Serge Chaloff. In New York, he worked with Charles Lloyd, Art Farmer, Stan Getz, Kenny Dorham, and John Coltrane; truly a musical prodigy at an early age. In the 1940s, he was featured in H. Allen Smith's book “Low Man on a Totem Pole.”
