ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album sounds completely different from what I intended. Well, not completely different, but a lot different. The original concept that I thought up - while trying to sublimate my pain one day while jogging - was to do an all-improvisational album. I had liked the title track from my last album [sic], which had been recorded almost as an afterthought. I decided to go in and quickly record some pure improvisations. This idea didn't really have a chance of lasting long, for a number of reasons. Primarily, one is NOT in the studio a hell of a lot more often than one IS in the studio, so it's best to use funds and time wisely and non-frivolously. Secondly, during the late spring/early summer of '98, I set up a little pseudo permanent 8-track studio in my apartment, and just began experimenting. (Up to that point, I had never used my Tascam 488 recorder regularly, because I never had the patience to set it up each time I wanted to use it.) What followed was such an explosion of songwriting that I had to rethink what I wanted to do with my studio time. I decided then, that together with just a number of improv pieces, I would also throw in as many new tunes as possible (plus one old one, but I'll get to that). So in early July I went up to Queens and came out with ... Minutiae.

witty, erudite, smart and funky

Just buy it already
What, for some Top 40 robo-dreck you went to school and got a job? I don't think so! Buy an album by a thinking guy who makes good music instead. Like this guy.

Julie Kulak

Lots of great music with a twist of humor.
Minutiae is a great driving or working album - music to think by. Along with the songs that allow George to display his amazing musical talents are the fantastically goofy ones, 'For This You Went To College?' and 'Moses & Morty'. A very creative blend of jazz, rock, and just about any other musical genre you can think of.

Carriep

Energetic, angry, and fun
Maybe it was just my mood when I first listened to this, but this strikes me as a very angry album. An, intense, creative, cathartic, comic, and enjoyable album, but an angry one.

I listen Minutiae to when work is going poorly and I need to vent without people looking at me strangely and/or calling the police.

Thinking mans Music
George has his wits about him and he's not afraid to use them! The styling oof his musiic varies from song to song but every tune is well worth the listen. This music is very inspirational. Keep em coming.

Peace,
G.
