Grüvology’s Walter Kemp III and Bernard Kunz push the boundaries of contemporary improvised jazz music. Kemp is acknowledged as a top local pianist. Kunz was named “one of Buffalo’s most adventurous guitarists” by Buffalo News Music Critic Jeff Miers (Feb. 2012) and Art Voice’s runner-up best jazz guitarist for 2016. Grüvology won the 2017 JazzBuffalo poll for top fusion group – a feat they have accomplished for four straight years.
They released 3 recordings; “First Set” (2008), “Unbridled” (2010), and “Freeway” (2014). The releases contain exclusively original material. Since 2012, the group has been acknowledged as Buffalo’s best in jazz and fusion – as is evident by their consistent winning of the JazzBuffalo poll.
Here is a video from JazzBuffalo partner Buffalo.fm of the band performing their infectious Song For Spaghetti at Larkin Square a few years back:
