Plays Music of Cole Porter

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Released as part of Concord's Concerto subsidiary, this unusual release matches together pianist George Shearing with the classical French horn player Barry Tuckwell for a set of 11 Cole Porter songs. Five selections use a full string section, two are performed with a quartet and four others are duets by Shearing and Tuckwell. In general Tuckwell does not improvise but Shearing's arrangements give a jazz feel to all of the performances and make the music accessible if not really essential to both classical and jazz listeners.
