A native New Yorker, George always loved music. He grew up with rocknroll and R&B but in his teens, he also developed a powerful passion for jazz  especially the big band styles of the pre-World War II era. This passion continued into his time at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Already a jazz musician himself (demonstrating a flair for showmanship on his stand-up double bass!), George successfully created a big band music hour for the schools radio station. Off-air, he often spoke of his true long-time dream: leading his own big band.

The station manager asked George to interview William Count Basie before a campus concert in 1979. This inspiring conversation changed Georges life the very next day, he reached out to fellow jazz players to create a 17-piece big band, which quickly became a darling of the campus community.

Throughout the 80s, with the blessing and counsel of Mr. Basie himself, George honed his craft, spreading the gospel of swing throughout the Pittsburgh tri-state region. He returned home to New York City in 1990, and gathered top New York-based musicians  including veterans of the worlds most legendary big bands  to continue living his dream.
