GEORGE SHEARING

The Complete Quintet Studio Sessions 1949-1951

"Suddenly, Dean stared into the darkness of a corner beyond the bandstand and said, ‘Sal, God has arrived.’

I looked. George Shearing. And as always he leaned his blind head on his pale hand, all ears opened like the ears of an elephant, listening to the American sounds and mastering them for his own English summer’s night use. Then they urged him to get up and play. He did. He played innumerable choruses with amazing chords that mounted higher and higher till the sweat splashed all over the piano and everybody listened in awe and fright. They led him off the stand after an hour.

He went back to his dark corner, old God Shearing, and the boys said, ‘There ain’t nothin left after that’. Jack Kerouac, On the Road, Viking Press, Inc. 1957

In addition to Jack Kerouac, Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and McCoy Tyner have sung the praises of jazz pianist George Shearing. After having become a part of the English musical scene, the George Shearing Quintet took to America a conception of elegant finesse and a new sound that for the sake of attentive listening we can allow ourselves to enjoy these 99 tracks to the fullest extent.
