Ringo Starr, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and many others. (Klaus also drew the cover for the Beatles REVOLVER album, one of the most iconic pieces of 20th century artwork, in my opinion.) What a total blast! Pianist Van Dyke Parks recommended me for it, and the band was me, Klaus, Van Dyke, and Jim Keltner on drums. That rhythm section was joined by Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Don Preston, Inara George, and Albert Lee for various tracks. Paul McCartney sent over his track from England for Klaus and Ringo to play on. It's all for a documentary on Klaus that will include a CD, book, and DVD. So much fun! (At left is Klaus and I with the REVOLVER album cover he signed for me.)
The January 30, 2006 issue of JazzWeek, a radio industry publication that goes out to jazz and smooth jazz radio stations and other interested parties, carried a long feature interview with Grant about the Say That! album, and the sad state of smooth jazz.
Here is a blurb about that issue of JazzWeek:
"Grant Geissman has been outspoken about his disdain for the direction smooth jazz radio has taken, and the guitarist has taken a much different tack on his latest album. Music Editor Tad Hendrickson catches up with Grant for a frank discussion."
