  • About TKA

    Ted Kurland Associates was founded by Ted Kurland in 1975 in Boston. At the time, he was a recent graduate from Brandeis University with a major in Economics. After Kurland graduated, he first worked for a small Boston talent agency, an invaluable experience that launched his career into the talent booking business. With two partners, he later started All American Talent, an agency that booked primarily blues artists such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, George Thorgood, Ko Ko Taylor, among others. All American Talent turned into Ted Kurland Associates and the agency's emphasis shifted to booking jazz performers.

    Eminent jazz vibraphonist, Gary Burton, was the first artist to become a client of the new company. Soon after, other major performers such as Pat Metheny, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Roy Haynes, Milt Jackson, Charles Mingus, Isaac Hayes, Dexter Gordon, Nina Simone, Modern Jazz Quartet, Jaco Pastorius, Ravi Shankar, Astor Piazzolla, Stephane Grappelli, Tony Williams, David Grisman, Freddie Hubbard and many other celebrated jazz musicians joined the growing family of artists represented by the agency.

    Ted Kurland Associates grew over time as more musicians were added to the roster and the agency began to handle their clients' recording, music publishing, movie soundtrack and video production and licensing deals. In the early 1980's, the agency expanded their bookings internationally and became well established in every major and minor market in the world, arranging tours throughout Asia, South America and Europe for the artists on the agency's roster.

    The agency is focused into three major divisions:  Vice President Jack Randall directs the domestic bookings and A&R signings, Senior Vice President David Sholemson oversees management of Pat Metheny and Kurland directly supervises International bookings and co-ordinates all operations.

    Although Ted Kurland Associates has remained most well-known for representation of major jazz artists, prominent performers from other fields such as blues, world and pop music are also represented by the agency. As the staff of Ted Kurland Associates celebrates over 35 years of service, they look back on decades of growth and success in one of the most exciting fields in the entertainment business.
