George Foley and his Rhythm
George Foley is a premier stride pianist. His renditions of Fats Waller's and James P.
Johnson pieces can not fail to stir the emotions of even the most jaded jazz fans. Similarly,
when George brings together master musicians from around Cleveland, his groups really
swing. Their song list ranges from early Morton through Gershwin and Ellington. George's
vocals are gems and his knowledge of composers and musicians is enormous.
Leader: George Foley, piano.
Musicians: Andy Anderson, tenor saxophone; Bruce Lehtinen, trombone; Bill Kenney, clarinet,
soprano saxophone; Gene Epstein, string bass; Bill Fuller, drums; Brad Bolton, guitar.
