George Crotty has forged his own exciting vocabulary on the cello, pushing the boundaries of the cello as a jazz instrument. The George Crotty Trio’s Chronotope (2022) showcases the Canadian cellist’s expressive fluidity and modal orientation. Their cross-cultural interplay draws on modal jazz, Indian Raga, and Arabic Maqam. One half of the Loose Roots Duo with West Coast fiddler Gabriel Dubreuil, the Canadian cellist also performs in a unique solo setting that explores his Irish and Jewish heritage.
Crotty has performed at Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Koerner Hall, Savannah Music Festival, Globalfest, Newport Folk Festival and the Vancouver Jazz Festival. He was invited to play at the prestigious New Directions Cello Festival and has toured internationally playing Bogotá, São Paulo, Berlin, and Paris. Crotty toured North America with 10-time Tony-winning Broadway musical, “The Band’s Visit,” and played on the video game soundtrack for “Assassin’s Creek Mirage.” A member of the Brooklyn Raga Massive, and the National Arab Orchestra, he enjoyed fruitful collaborations with Bob Ezrin, Simon Shaheen, Paquito D’Rivera, Anat Cohen, and Darol Anger.
