Inspired by R&B, jazz, Blues and rock (especially the Doors), George has his own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano. In 1972, he recorded his first solo piano album, Ballad and Blues 1972, for the late guitarist John Fahey’s Takoma label.

His latest solo piano release is, Love Will Come - The Music of Vince Guaraldi, Vol. 2 (released 2/2/10), which features compositions by the late jazz pianist, including pieces from the Peanuts® TV specials.

Since 1980 George has released ten other solo piano albums: Autumn (1980), Winter Into Spring (1982), December (1982), Summer (1991), Forest (1994), Linus & Lucy-The Music of Vince Guaraldi (1996), which features compositions by the late jazz pianist, including Cast Your Fate to the Wind and pieces from the Peanuts® TV specials; Plains (1999), which was inspired by his Eastern Montana upbringing, Night Divides The Day- The Music of The Doors (2002), and Montana - A Love Story (2004) and Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions – A Hurricane Relief Benefit (2006).
