As a Call To Action in the hopes of encouraging jazz lovers and perhaps future Jazz lovers (and future voters, too!) to come out in force for this November’s Presidential election, Jazz Pianist George Kahn is doing his part by getting music lovers to “Jazz The Vote”.
George has a cover of John Mayer’s “Waiting On The World To Change” on his latest CD release “Cover Up!” and is asking fans to please go to Itunes and download his instrumental version of the song.
“ We are at a unique point in history “ George says. “I have been pretty jaded about politics in general, but for the first time in recent memory, it feels like we have real choices coming up in November’s election. Whether you vote Democratic, Republican or otherwise, it is more important than ever to exercise your right to vote.”
In support of this concept, for each download of “Waiting On The World To Change” (George’s Jazz version only), from now until election day, November 4, 2008, George will donate $1.00 to the political party of the downloader’s choice. All a listener needs to
do is to send George an email to his label, Playing Records: firstname.lastname@example.org ,after they have downloaded the song, and tell him who should receive the $1.00 donation…Democrat, Republican or Independent parties only (no individuals).
