With Charlie Stacey (piano), Jamie Murray (drums) and Mikele Montolli (bass) Outer Spaces is firmly a modern jazz record. But it draws its inspiration and influence from many musical traditions, from Western and Indian classical musics to traditional African music.
For George, music is about expressing only what is natural to yourself. ‘I want my compositions to reflect exactly who I am and what I want to hear, but also allow for everyone in the band to make the music truly their own.’.
This is music from the heart, spirit and mind. George takes unexpected routes to get to the point, but first and foremost the honesty of this music is the first thing he hopes the listener gets.
