For George: Tribute to a Master (In memory of George Van Eps) by jazz guitarist Kenny Poole marks the debut of J Curve Record's Tribute Series. Kenny Poole has long had a strong musical reputation in the Midwest, but it is only recently that his fame has been spreading further due to his association with J Curve.
Kenny Poole discovered the music of George Van Eps when he was sixteen, and it was a major turning point in his life.
