Tribute to Kenny Poole (1947 - 2006)

Inducted into OFGC Hall of Fame January, 2006 



Friday, May 27th, 2006

"Goodbye our talented friend.."


We are in the process of building a tribute to Kenny Poole. For now, we'll post the club notice of his passing and then list all the places we've talked about him on our club web site over the years - and, all the tunes and video of him we have on the web site:

OFGC Club e-Notice of Kenny's Passing

Cincinnati Enquirer Announcement of Kenny's Passing

Tributes to Kenny From His Friends at His Last Concert - Jan 21st, 2006

OFGC Club Web Site "Kenny Sightings"

Tunes and Video.....

Net Sightings & Kenny Bio - (click)


"East Meets Midwest"  - Kenny Poole (Midwest) & Gene Bertoncini (East) 
"The interplay between the two guitarists is a marvel."  - Bret Primack, Jazz Times Magazine
"For George - Tribute To A Master"  - Kenny's wonderful tribute to the late great 7-string master, George Van Eps - died 11/29/98.  (Review by Jim Santella posted on All About Jazz)
"S'us Four" - Kenny Poole & Cal Collins
"This one recording where you get it all:  Bebop, bossa nova and the blues.  Highly recommended." - Ed Benson, Just Jazz guitar Magazine

"deep end of the poole" - DVD of Kenny's last concert at the Ohio Fingerstyle Guitar Club - Jan 21st, 2006  (click here to buy)
"Milestones" - Cal Collins Trio - w/ Kenny Poole on bass and Terry Moore on drums.  "There's a reason that Kenny Poole could play those amazing bass parts on his solo guitar - he was a bass player who happened to also be able to play guitar."  Palmer Moore - Org. OFGC


Drawn by his childhood friend, Jim Leming, currently living in Issaquah, Washington.
