George Shearing (piano), Don Thompson (bass)

This duo recording by the renowned jazz pianist George Shearing and his regular collaborator, the bassist Don Thompson, lay hidden away in a drawer for almost thirty years. When Thompson listened again to the recording shortly after Sir George Shearing’s death in 2011 he realised that he had in his hands a very special recording.

The fourteen tracks were recorded in early 1983 at Shearing’s home in New York during a six-week residency at a NY jazz club. The two musicians spent afternoons drinking tea and playing just for fun. The relaxed atmosphere with Shearing playing his own piano in his own home, with no studio pressures or audience to please, meant that the only thing on his mind was to make beautiful music.

The duo tracks include a Thompson original, a lyrical version of “The Skye Boat Song” as well as several well-known jazz standards. The four solo tracks are, to Thompson, what George was all about. They include “Beautiful Love”, which Thompson explains as a “onetime- only flash of the genius of George Shearing. I'd never heard him play it before and he never played it again. I think it's one of the most amazingly beautiful things I've ever heard.”
