Musicians’ Quotes

  • “George Robert is playing and writing better than ever, and the music is strong, honest, and swinging! The band is made up of some of my favorite musicians on the planet. This is about as good as it gets in terms of a rhythm section that inspires a horn player to go beyond their comfort zone. And that is exactly what happened. George plays here with a fire and intensity that I’ve yet to hear. His sound is present, beautiful, and grounded in such a great way.” Bob Mintzer on « New Life », with Dado Moroni, Peter Washington & Jeff Hamilton (GPR Records, 2014)
