George Pavlis

''I was born September 22 1956 in Greenwich, Connecticut. I was first introduced to music at an early age by my mother, who was a jazz pianist, and by my older brother, who constantly played great music (soul, rock and jazz) in the car and at home. My mother arranged for me to take lessons with an excellent pianist and teacher, Stuart Hemingway, who happened to be blind. I studied with Stuart for many years and he was a major influence. Later, I would study for several years with John Mehegan, and then I moved on to Manhattan School of Music for one semester leaving to go on the national tour with Vicki Sue Robinson.

I started touring and recording with Vicki in the 1970s as her keyboard player and then continued to write songs with her into the 1980s and 90s. As well as playing with Miles and Larry Coryell, I've also played keyboards on Ted Nugent's State of Shock album. I performed and recorded for several years with the jazz/fusion ensemble, Tomorrow Band, which released the album Open Fire on All Night Records. We opened for artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Average White Band, Jan Hammer, Dave Brubeck, Jeff Lorber, Kenny G., and Dave Valentin. I've also recorded my own albums, George Pavlis and Sunscape and a jazz/fusion CD Time of Arrival by Pavlis and Taylor.

I've also recorded with Dan Pickering at RCA Records studios on a project which featured artists such as David Sanborn, Alphonse Mouzon, the Brecker Brothers, Larry Coryell, Butch Taylor and Anthony Jackson. I played keyboards for many years with The Butch Taylor Band in the tri-state area. I've also recorded with artists such as Dan Pickering, Mutti Lewis and Butch Taylor and the Penetrators.''
