for Gail Jhonson, Eric Darius, Karen Briggs, Marcus Johnson, Althea
Rene, Marcus Anderson and many more. Currently he is touring with
sax player Pamela Williams. While George is coming from Gospel
roots, he also feels at home with R&B, neo-soul, jazz, fusion, funk,
pop and certainly smooth jazz. With Make It Happen (2015)
he has now built the foundation for his own solo career.
On his album George is joined
by Kennedy Atkinson, KayTa Matsuno, Keith Jenkins and Ethan Henson (guitar),
Jeanette Harris and Leroy Harper (sax), Jermone Randall (bass), and
Anthony Roberts (drums). With Timeless he has created a soulful intro to his solo project in the style known by the late
keyboard genius George Duke.
delivers a dynamic and sophisticated up-tempo piano piece with a
precise arrangement. While that enjoy the contemporary jazz fan, may
be Sweet Love for the ladies. Jeanette Harris leads on sax
the romantic melody and is accompanied by George on piano.
With stomping beat and handclapping comes the uplifting Two
Step featuring Leroy Harper, who has toured with soul legend
Make It Happen shines with full-bodied keyboard and
electric piano sound, best balanced on a good stereo system. On
Hopeless he excels with elegance on the electric piano again.
Tengo Un Amor celebrates Latin jazz and features the
brilliant guitar play of maestro KayTa Matsuno. The song speeds up
to a furious Salsa experience. Night Lights
has a good flow like a easy going ride through the city at night,
when the lights reflect on the front of the vehicle. Tgif keeps that
groove with guitarist Keith Jenkins and saxophonist Leroy Harper get
involved perfectly. The album ends with a reprise of InThaMomint.
George Freeman has delivered with Make It Happen a
masterpiece that brings everything the gentle listener only wants.
Great keyboard, great piano and great entertainment.
