Grand Piano

Grand Piano

by George Shearing
     
 
George Shearing recorded frequently while on Concord but this was his first full-length session of unaccompanied solos for the label. Most of the ten selections are interpreted as ballads (Shearing takes an effective vocal on his original "Imitations") but he does cook a bit on "Nobody Else but Me" and "Easy to Love." However the emphasis is on slow thoughtful tempos

Overview

George Shearing recorded frequently while on Concord but this was his first full-length session of unaccompanied solos for the label. Most of the ten selections are interpreted as ballads (Shearing takes an effective vocal on his original "Imitations") but he does cook a bit on "Nobody Else but Me" and "Easy to Love." However the emphasis is on slow thoughtful tempos and introspective improvising.
