El Portal Theatre Grant Geissman
Blooz and more!

New album release concert, with special guest saxophone legend Tom Scott!
Get ready for a concert of blues music to soothe your soul with jazz great GRANT GEISSMAN!

Legendary, Emmy-nominated jazz guitarist Grant Geissman (who has played with such greats as Chuck Mangione, Steve Tyrell, Burt Bacharach Elvis Costello, and Ringo Starr) in a world premiere CD release live concert! With special guest, Grammy Award-winning sax player Tom Scott (solo artist, Steely Dan, George Harrison, LA Express, Blues Brothers)!

Grant and his amazing band (Brian Scanlon, woodwinds; Jim Cox, piano and B3 organ; Lyman Medeiros, bass; Ray Brinker, drums) make their first appearance at El Portal. (But you may have seen Grant backing Steve Tyrell here in March.)

Veteran guitarist and composer Grant Geissman releases his 16th album, BLOOZ, via his Futurism label in a joint venture with Mesa/Bluemoon Recordings. Leading the way, he takes the listener on a stylistic adventure, exploring the genre in many forms. “The album is called BLOOZ because it’s my take on the blues. It’s a fairly wide interpretation, and not always traditional,” said Geissman. “It’s the album I always wanted to make.”

Apart from his own albums, Grant co-wrote the music for all 12 seasons of “Two and a Half Men,” as well as all 6 seasons of “Mike and Molly.” 

Check out Grant talking about his albums and playing his iconic solo from Chuck Mangione’s “Feels So Good” at Norman’s Rare Guitars here:
