I just saw a post from JoAnn Kane on Artie Kane's Facebook page that he passed away on June 21, 2022. He was 93 years old.

If you have not read it, I highly recommend his book, "Music To My Ears."

Rest in piece Mr. Kane.

James

Upared with Jon Burlingame's obituary.

It never ever even registered with me JoAnn was related, let alone his wife.

What a brilliant pianist Artie Kane was. He played on so many soundtracks that he's almost guaranteed to be in everybody's collection somewhere. On many occasions I probably wouldn't know it was him, but when he was allowed to let loose he had a very distinctive style, with an amazing technique. I absolutely loved his solos on ZIGZAG (Oliver Nelson, the LP re-recording) way back when I got that release. Another one that comes to mind is THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN series. I "think" that was him on keyboards there too. Just realised that Oliver Nelson wrote both of those. I'm gonna check the FSM CD composers list to see how many FSM releases I have with Artie Kane playing on them.


Just checked - Artie Kane plays on 68 CDs released by FSM alone.

Also interesting to see he was married eight times. Don't know why that's interesting to me, but it's interesting.

Very sorry to hear of Artie's passing. The man is a film music legend (that's him playing piano on POA as he was doing a lot of work for Lionel Newman at Fox in the mid sixties, including TV stuff like "Batman"). BTW: If you want to hear some really clean keyboard technique, and you have the FSM "Man From U.N.C.L.E" Vol. 2, CD, check out his solo on "Samborina" (party source) from Walter Scharf's score for "The Giuoco Piano Affair" and his playing on "The Iowa-Scuba Affair " (Mort Stevens). Artie also composed some great scores for series TV, especially for Matlock, which he worked on for several seasons.

Also recommend his book (a fast, enjoyable read).

Sad to hear this! Since I was a young teenager I've loved his swinging jazzy LP of movie themes, "Henry Mancini Presents Artie Kane Playing The Swinging Screen Scene" from the early 70s on RCA Dynaflex records, an extremely thin and rather flexible LP material with superb sound quality. I transferred it to digital years ago and everybody would swear this wasn't from an LP.


RIP, Mr. Kane, you'll live on in your music.

And while we're at it, here's the first of the two, equally fine. Enjoy!

BTW: Where can I get that Mancini shirt?!

At his wedding to JoAnn (his 8th) Lionel Newman had bumper stickers made that read "Honk If You've Been Married
To Artie Kane".

He also scored some obscure TV movies, like FIRE AND RAIN from 1989:

Just two days before he died I was looking at CD liner notes and saw his name and was thinking to myself: Wait -- such-and-such composer knows him -- now I have a possible way to reach him and talk to him. Damnit. :-(

Trivia: Artie Kane's wife JoAnne was once married to Dave Grusin -- and Dave Grusin's wife was once married to Artie Kane!
