ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GEORGE MISERLIS, The Hairy Blank, from Ted's Band on SCRUBS is so delighted to have BIG CITY SESSIONS with THE BLANKS on Track 4 and a tad of The Blanks on Track 10 with Emmy Nominated, Paul F. Perry, writing brand new lyrics on track 8! Blank Fans will LOVE having this album in their collection!

George, whose father sang him Greek songs such as “Maria Me Ta Kitrina” while he was in the cradle, fell in love with American music upon attending Concord Academy in Massachusetts and Syracuse University in upstate New York, and performed in Evita playing Che Guevera on an unforgettable East Coast tour.

He was hired by the original New York cast for the long-running show “Forever Plaid”, performing throughout the US and exclusively in Beverly Hills at the Canon Theater. It was as a Plaid he was fortunate to meet Colin R. Freeman, and discovering they shared an affinity for the absurd and ludicrous, became fast friends.

Producer and arranger, Colin R. Freeman, has worked in London’s West End productions of Cats, Chess, Jesus Christ Superstar, Me and My Girl, and Pirates of Penzance. He’s conducted the Pittsburgh, San Jose, Rochester, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Minnesota Symphony Orchestras, among others. He is best known for exquisite arrangements for Hal Linden, Rod Stewart, and his beautiful wife Lorna Luft.

Paul F. Perry, arranger and lyricist for The Blanks, contributed brand new lyrics for the Greek song, “Tein Afto Pou To Lene Agape,” which was originally sung by Sophia Loren in the movie, “Boy on a Dolphin,” back in 1957 and nominated for an Academy Award. This new song is entitled, “What is Love?” Most recently, Paul wrote half the music on the NBC SCRUBS musical (MY MUSICAL) and was just nominated for a 2007 Emmy for Best Original Music Composition. Indeed, it was a great honor that he was able to write these brand new special lyrics for George's album!

And so, enjoy the uptempo, real driving rhythms and the tender, heart-wrenching ballads of Big City Sessions sung by George Miserlis’ smooth-as-tsatziki, velvet baritone voice today!

NY Review:

"There's something about George Miserlis' voice that's quite appealing - it's especially clear and strong....

… a member of the playful a capella group The Blanks; the group sings the Beach Boys hit "God Only Knows" on this CD. It's an entertaining, feel-good track.

Colin provides sensitive solo accompaniment for a reflective "Bein' Green" that is blessedly understated and quite effective.

…exciting Vegas-style charts and George sings them with channeled flair…"
