Acclaimed by Encyclopedia Britannica as "the greatest American musical drama ever written," The Modern Jazz Quartet perform it at the highest level of creative flair to pay homage to a marvel of composition with the utmost degree of sincerity and respect. The Modern Jazz Quartet is alive and well in this effort, thoroughly brewing with overbearing optimism.
GEORGE BARNES is a jazz education, exotica swing music artist. He came from a family of professional musicians and his father, who was a guitarist taught him to play at age 9. George's original chosen instrument was the piano which he began playing at age 6 but when the Barnes family lost their piano as well as their house in the depression all that was left was a Sears Roebuck Silvertone guitar.
George Barnes Quartet: Don by C. Michael Bailey, published on May 1, 2003. Barnes leads a two guitar front quartet through the heart of the American Canon from the perspective of his patently Midwestern roots. His musical approach is more rural than urban, recalling an interesting combination of Western swing and the French Hot Club. Mr. Barnes navigates his quartet through 15 selections, only one in excess of five minutes, all closely arranged and performed. There is nothing in this recital that smacks of a jam session. These songs are all presented in a swinging, tight-as-a-drum manner. Barnes and company turn in no less than three fine Gershwin.
