George Dulin Bio
New York based pianist/composer George Dulin grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, surrounded by music, and played in his first jazz band in 8th grade. Starting at the end of high school, George began playing professionally in small ensembles and was the piano player in two major Kansas City big bands: The New Vintage Big Band and The Boulevard Big Band. He then received a scholarship to attend The Berklee College of Music in Boston. Solo, Duo, Trio, Chamber Group, and Big Band performances followed throughout the U.S. After graduating from Berklee, George moved to New York, where he received his Masters Degree from New York University, while teaching there as an adjunct professor, in the meantime, earning recognition by placing in major piano competitions, like The Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition, and a composition prize for his piano concerto, “Scene From A Living Dream”.  

A winner of a 2007 ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Award, George has performed at Birdland, The Bluenote, 55 Bar, Cornelia St. Cafe, Smalls, The Allen Room @ Jazz at Lincoln Center, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, The Knitting Factory and countless Jazz Festivals. He has performed with Cecil Taylor, Kenny Werner, Chris Potter, Richard Bona, Gil Goldstein, Dafnis Prieto, Bob Bowman, Ari Hoenig and Francisco Mela, as well as recorded with Teo Macero, John Scofield, George Garzone, Lenny Picket and Alex Sipiagin.  

In March 2008, his debut album, “Ride Of Your Life” was released on Cadence Jazz Records, and is already receiving rave reviews. George’s music is heavily influenced by free jazz, classical, rock and film music, and he has written compositions for countless instrumentations; from trio to big band, and from concertos to full orchestral works. His music has been heard as far away as Spain, Switzerland, Italy and Japan, and as close as Miami, Boston, New Orleans, Kansas City and Washington D.C.

He also played on stage with jazz masters as Lowell Fulson, Isaac Hurley, Gene Bertoncini, Bob Mover, Gary Smulyan, Nilson Matta, Dick Oats, Roni Ben-Hur, Jeff Gardner. As a composer and musician he worked for Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg, het Muziek Lod, De Werf, Victoria, De Vieze Gasten and Circus Picolini.
