Grant Geissman has been a mainstay of the jazz genre for over 40 years; his storied career took off in 1978 when he recorded alongside trumpeter Chuck Mangione on the latter’s platinum-selling album and mega-hit “Feels So Good,” the song featuring an iconic guitar solo by Geissman, who would thereafter go on to also become a member of Mangione’s touring band. Geissman’s career as a session guitarist has been prolific and includes work alongside many of music’s greatest, including Ringo Starr, Quincy Jones, Steve Tyrell, Burt Bacharach, Klaus Voormann, Van Dyke Parks and Brian Wilson, Elvis Costello, Robbie Williams, Michael Feinstein, Lorraine Feather, Gordon Goodwin, and David Benoit. Geissman’s pop and jazz solo work in the 1980s also helped define the contemporary instrumental music of that era. Geissman is also a veteran session guitarist in film and television, having co-written music for all six seasons of Mike & Molly, season one of B Positive, and most significantly, all 12 seasons of Two and a Half Men, where his work on the hit CBS sitcom earned him an Emmy nomination for it’s catchy theme song.
