Reviews

"Grant Geissman negotiates and delivers a world class joint venture on his hit CD, Business as Usual. With arrangements for electric, electrical classical, classical, string acoustic and acoustic guitar on 12 tunes written by Grant, it's no wonder Geissman fans continue to be amazed by his brilliant string virtuosity. The title track opens the set with a high-energy stratocaster solo by Geissman with Sam Riney wailing on alto saxophone. "Chase The Dragon" features a funky dance-oriented rhythm, while "Gypsies" adds a Latin perspective to the set with Grant on classical and acoustic guitar. The exotic harmony of electric sitar with acoustic guitar (with tabla by Brad Dutz) on "India" adds another dimension to the Geissman string instrument collection. "Quiet Time" is pensive and portentous of the "smooth" guitar work that follows on "Tears Like Rain" — unlike the more organic flavor of Rustic Technology. Grant Geissman is truly a world-class string virtuoso with global appeal and a command of his instruments. This CD lends the listener an "around the world" feeling and welcomes you back home to Business as Usual."
