    Tribute  
  • Tribute (2012): "A tribute to a few of my favorite composers," George Andrews.

Guitar interpretations of compositions spanning 400 years, performed on "a few of my favorite guitars"

 
  • REFLECTIONS (2009): REFLECTIONS is a little collection of gentle, peaceful guitar music for contemplative, relaxed listening, perhaps while reading, daydreaming, or even when falling asleep. Enjoy...
  • IMAGES OF BARRIOS (2008): AgustÍn Barrios Mangoré, Paraguayan Master Guitarist/Composer, was one of the greatest geniuses who ever played and composed for the guitar. His brief and lyrical pieces have unparalleled charm and grace and are truly a delight to play. In his day he was known as "The Chopin of the guitar". It is my honor to give him tribute.
  • SKELETAL (2007): I have chosen these selections for their simple beauty. An x-ray of my recent hand injury reminded me of the contrast between the apparently simple structure of the skeleton and amazing movements that it supports. The songs on this CD also have an apparently simple structure and yet have a deep and satisfying sound. I hope you will enjoy the simple beauty of these pieces as much as I do.
  • SOLO (2005) A selection of pieces most often requested at recitals, together with some of the guitarist's personal favorites.
  • LA FLORESTA (2004) This release spotlights the music of Rodriguez, Brahms, Ponce, Sor, Harrison, Shand, Albeniz, MacDowell, Carcassi, Tarrega, and Sagreras.  Mr. Andrews'  performance, with its characteristic clarity and sensitivity, underscores the lyricism and picturesque qualities that distinguish these haunting compositions.  The listener may well be reminded of Hector Berlioz' observation that "the guitar is a miniature orchestra."
  • FRESCO (2000):  Inspiration for this  collection of works came during a visit and performance in Vienna, where the guitarist played in the old-world setting of the Belvedere Palace.
  • VIGNETTES (1999): Miniature but delightful works by composers from Argentina, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico & Spain.

   
  • SKETCHBOOK (1998): A collection of classical transcriptions, these pieces are drawn from 17th through 20th century composers, and were chosen to provide a taste of the delicate nature and melodic beauty of the guitar... Relax and enjoy!

In addition to the soundtrack, the music also contains other lovely ballads and classical guitar selections.
JAZZ RECORDINGS:
  • ONCE I LOVED (2006): This is our interpretation of the many moods of romantic love. They're all here, from exhilaration to heartbreak. These renditions are improvisations, recorded without rehearsal or arrangements. John Hoekstra on keyboards and George Andrews on bass provide a lush background for Nancy Wilson's rich vocals. This is what we call "smooth jazz."   We hope you'll agree.   
  • NIGHT MUSIC (2004): When you're in the mood for a mellow evening carried along by soft and soulful jazz selections well-played by a cohesive jazz group, try this one.  Greg Milton and John Hoekstra, inventive and expressive  keyboardists, and George Andrews, versatile and innovative on the bass and guitar, back up Nancy Wilson's  smooth and sultry vocals to create a warm and intimate sound.  You'll want to relax to this one again and again.  
  • QUIET NIGHTS (2003): This is the first release in a new Jazz Duo Series from Raven Recordings. The focus here is on understated jazz treatment of timeless tunes using the barest essential instruments (bass and/or guitar) to accompany and set the mood for Nancy's splendid vocals. Nancy & George; that's it! The sessions were done in the true jazz idiom: no formal arrangements; just do what feels right. We hope it feels right to you.
NATURE IMPROVISATIONS:
  • LIFE PULSE (2004): This innovative CD is described by one listener as "hypnotic, absorbing and sensual."  George Andrews and Nancy Wilson combine the pulsing of the human heartbeat with the plaintive tones of cellos, flutes, didgeridoos, gongs, bells, original melodies and the sounds of nature to produce a listening experience that we believe you'll find both haunting and restorative.
