About The George Jazz Group
The George Jazz Group is committed to playing the music of the 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond; music more commonly know as - "Jazz Standards." This musical genre is truly an American art form which conjures up composers with titles such as Duke and Count; musicians such as Dizzie, Ella, Buddy, Monk and Sinatra. Songs with poetic lyrics found in titles such as Willow Weep For Me, Autumn Leaves, Our Love Is Here To Stay, I Bought You Violets For Your Furs and I've Got You Under My Skin. This is the musical culture that helped form the American landscape from New York to LA, with points between such as Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans. This is the music of our parents and grand parents as well as members of America's youth before the word "Teenager" was coined.
Maybe Duke Ellington defined it best when he said, "In jazz, we never play the same song once."
The George Jazz Group may subscribe to Duke's definition in that the group is as versatile as jazz itself. Sometimes a Trio, sometimes a Quartet or more...sometimes the same musicians, sometimes not. The one constant that you can depend on is hearing the best musicians the area has to offer, playing the best music The American Song Book has to offer.
