Artie Kane

Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, as a child prodigy, Artie Kane (born Aaron Cohen April 14, 1929) began his piano studies with Agnes Wright at three-and-a-half years old, winning numerous contests against older children. Newspapers in Columbus reported many of his competitions and performances throughout his childhood. Later he studied with Madame Karyn Dayas at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Madame Herz in New York. Kane is a pianist, film composer, and conductor. His music career as a pianist in the Hollywood studios spans from 1960 through 1978, working with Frank Sinatra, Henry Mancini, John Williams, and Quincy Jones, to name a few. He conducted over 60 motion pictures for various composers from 1991 through 1999. As a composer he wrote music for over 250 television shows (Wonder Woman, Vegas, Loveboat, Hotel, Dynasty, Matlock, Question of Guilt, Man Against the Mob) and seven motion pictures, such as Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Eyes of Laura Mars, Night of the Juggler, and Wrong Is Right. Kane was nominated for a Grammy Award along with Ralph Grierson for their 1975 two-piano Gershwin Album, "S’Wonderful," on Angel Records. He is the author of "Music To My Years: Life and Love Between the Notes," a memoir of his illustrious career, eight marriages, numerous girlfriends, and his own family—all of whom had a marked effect on his life.
