Für Plattenaufnahmen für das Label Melodisc leitete er 1945/46 in Los Angeles ein eigenes Oktett, in dem u. a. Bill Doggett, Freddie Green, Buddy Tate, J. J. Johnson, John Simmons und Lucky Thompson spielten; es entstanden die Singles „Baby It's Up to You“ und „Grand Slam“. Außerdem wirkte George in dieser Zeit noch bei Aufnahme-Sessions von Bob Mosley, Ivie Anderson, des Oktetts von Charles Mingus (Mai 1946), Slim Gaillard and His Boogiereeneers, Oscar Pettiford, Dinah Washington/Lucky Thompson mit. Ende der 1940er Jahre zog sich George krankheitsbedingt aus der Musikszene zurück. Seine Spielweise erinnert nach Ansicht von Erik Wiedemann an Harry Sweets Edison.
