Gary Campbell Says:

“I just watched new DVD “The Music of George Garzone and the Triadic Chromatic Approach.”. First of all, George and the other cats sound beautiful and the performances alone are worth the price of the DVD. As a player and teacher myself, it’s a real pleasure and inspiration to see George demonstrate his approach. Jazz is about personal expression and discovery, and George’s way really emphasizes that process – not stock solutions to generic issues, but how to search, meditate, and find your voice. Now the whole world can hear his enlightened message through this DVD. A unique and beautiful contribution by one of today’s true masters.”

Gary Campbell – Recording Artist, Author, and Associate Professor of Jazz Studies/Saxophone, Coordinator – Jazz Performance at Florida International University
