Album Notes
One At A Time
The ballad collection 1996-2006
MSW-D101 [2007]

Long regarded by critics and contemporaries alike as a ballad singer of considerable artistry and depth, George Evans has even been referred to as “a ballad's best friend.” Despite that pronouncement, the strictures of jazz radio have fairly well ensured that George's ballad performances aren't heard with the frequency of the livelier songs from his various albums. With that in mind, on the occasion of his 10th year in the recording industry, George has compiled these 14 ballads both for fans and new listeners, to underline his love of a gentler, more heartfelt approach. These selections cover a period of 10 years; from the youthful insouciance of his debut release, Moodswing (recorded in 1996) to the more mature sound and style found on Bewitched (released in 2006) we know you'll find something here to enjoy, and perchance to love.

About George Evans

Recognized as one of the foremost vocal interpreters of jazz and standards on the Canadian scene, George Evans has been celebrated diversely as "a ballad's best friend" by All-Canadian Jazz Festival, and "an agile voice and always swinging" by the National Post. Since coming to prominence in Montreal in the early-1990s, George has been nominated National Jazz Awards “Vocalist of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year,” and Ontario Independent Music Awards “Jazz Artist of the Year.” George tours actively, and has been praised for his lively, polished performances in major clubs in cities such as New York, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

George Evans first thrilled Toronto jazz audiences in 1999 when he launched his second album "I'm All Smiles" at the Top o' the Senator. He went on to appear there with regularity through the launch of his fifth album "Movie Songs' in 2005. Over the years George became familiar to audiences at home through frequent appearances on TVO, Bravo, and CoolTV, and through his many sessions and concerts for the CBC. George Evans was the founding member of The Three Crooners, and in 2004 he selected, sequenced, and produced the successful "Here Come The Boys: a Canadian Crooner Collection" for Maximum Jazz and Universal Music Canada.

Evans has created a current total of eight projects as a leader. His sixth album, "Bewitched" has been heard on all the major outlets, and the forthcoming “Live at the Cellar” is hotly anticipated.
