Musician

Grant Geissman

Born:

Guitarist/composer Grant Geissman is a popular Contemporary Jazz recording artist, with fourteen highly regarded solo albums. Grant's latest project, Cool Man Cool, features "cool music I like to play, cool people I like to play with," including special guests Chick Corea, Chuck Mangione, Tom Scott, Jerry Hahn, Russell Ferrante, Patrice Rushen, Mike Finnigan, and Van Dyke Parks! His previous project, Say That!, marked his return to "real" (not Smooth) jazz, and contains thirteen original Grant Geissman compositions that play like a righteous melding of 1960s Wes Montgomery, Horace Silver, and Jimmy Smith. Jazz critic Bill Milkowski wrote that "Say That! is an iron fist upside the mushy head of smooth jazz, and Grant Geissman's defiant declaration of independence."
