George has worked with jazz greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Joe Henderson, Stan Getz, Jones brothers Hank, Thad & Elvin, Chet Baker - the list is endless; perhaps his best reference comes from Oscar Peterson, who wrote in his autobiography ‘his balance and innate sensitivity make him one of the finest jazz bassists around today’.   Zoe Rahman “a remarkable pianist by any standard(The Observer), is one of the brightest stars on the contemporary British jazz scene. A vibrant and highly individual pianist, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical ackground, British/Bengali heritage and herbroad musical taste. A MOBO Award-winning pianist, her own albums include the Mercury-nominated Melting Pot and Kindred Spirits. 'Unison brings together Mraz with a rising star, British pianist Zoe Rahman. Their playing is as easy and relaxed as that of long-time friends. It’s a set that puts Mraz directly in the spotlight' (NYCJR) “...a glorious affirmation of the timeless virtues of melodic improvisation.” (Jazz Journal)
