San Diego Music Award Nominee
Posted on July 24, 2012
The Lonesome Georges jazz quartet was recently nominated for the San Diego Music Awards’ Best New Artist category for their unique mixture of traditional, Latin and blues-flavored contemporary jazz sound. Their album Simple Harmonic Motion features music written and/or arranged by 2012 Westview High Graduate Ben Statz, the quartet’s pianist. The band, also comprised of Ben Levinson (bass), Daniel Shaughnessy (saxophone) and Nick Velez (drums), is named after the last Pinta Island tortoise in existence – the only one left of its kind. He was the rarest animal in the world.
All four band members are 2012 graduates and will be attending three different colleges in the the fall: CalArts, Cal Poly SLO and UCLA.
The CD, plus more information on the band can be found at www.cdbaby.com/artist/thelonesomegeorges and will soon be available on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and more.
