Overview

Fans of legendary jazz pianist George Shearing will without a doubt want to have a look at this release featuring the only concert by the oft-underappreciated musician ever captured on camera. Originally presented as part of the VIEW Video Jazz series, this performance was captured live at the Paul Mason Winery in 1991. Neil Swainson joins in on bass to perform an impressive collection of tunes including "Isn't It Romantic?," "Lullaby in Birdland," "Memphis in June," and "Moose the Mooch."
