George Freeman – Make It Happen

Make It HappenRecorded for Low Key Productions, Make It Happen encompasses a rich dynamic spectrum as George Freeman employs all of the digital wizardry of the latest technology. With Make It Happen, all of the facets of Freeman’s ever-evolving artistry are highlighted in vivid detail. But it is the instrument from his youth that infuses the tracks with the requisite warmth. “Last year, I purchased an acoustic piano. You can’t beat the feel of a real instrument in my opinion. It’s vintage and it gives so much depth and richness.”

As a musical director and bandleader, the demands on George’s time and creative energies are considerable. “When you are in the process of doing everything for everyone else — putting shows and bands together — it is music all of the time. And because you don’t see the immediate gratification or payment from a solo project, you tend to keep putting it off. But a friend of mine put out his album and I watched him in the process. I thought, ‘I’ve played behind people who do this, why don’t I give it a shot?’” A thoughtful, analytical player and composer, George is proud of the influences that he distills into his own creative identity. “I hope my music is an enlightening part of my listeners’ lives, a soundtrack that allows them to relax, and think back with some good listening music.”

Bringing musicians and audiences together, composing thoughtful music with soul and imagination and crafting modern smooth jazz soundscapes: In 2015 George Freeman commands center stage to Make It Happen. Get it now at CDBaby.
