Synopsis

Amazon.com
On In with the Out Crowd, you'll find a colorful variety of musical styles; styles that guitarist Grant Geissman touches on with rather more flair and accuracy than most musicians in the genre. There's the jazz-rock mix of "Did I Save?," the low- key, long-car-trip-across-open-country (possibly Kansas) sensibility of "Highway 60s Revisited," the folky flavor of "Dharma," and "Secret Garden," evocative of a long, lazy sunny day. The CD ends on a high note, with the folk-rock-ish "Life ... and Stuff." Overall, it points to Geissman's talent as a guitarist and composer that he can incorporate such variety so successfully, and that his music, while light in feel, is still so evocative. -- Genevieve Williams

CD Reviews

Great record all the way around. This guy can play!

"Grant continues to amaze me. He's a great session player and his versatility shows on this recording. "Did I Save" and the title track are very cool 70's retro tunes. There are a variety of tunes that are definitely cool for smooth jazz. I recently saw Grant performing with Chuck Mangione and also on TV with John Tesh for Tesh's latest CD. He is an awesome player."

"Grant Geissman is defintely the most successful musician to come out of the Chuck Mangione band in the 1970's and early 80's. There's not that much out there with Geissman in his own name, but what is out there is great. I believe Take Another Look is good. The first song is contemporary jazz at its best. If you like Smooth jazz guitar, or are buying this cd because you know Grant from the Mangione band, you won't be dissapointed with this release. Nice musicians, nice music!"
