Format: Audio CD
"The Definitive George Shearing" is a collection of 21 of the most remarkable and famous melodies that George Shearing recorded between 1949 and 1959 in solo, trio and quintet settings. Besides the usual instruments that were utilized on these sessions (piano, guitar, bass, drums and vibes), the addition of bongos, conga and harmonica made it more striking and exotic-sounding. To name just a few of the talented musicians among many others who supported him on these recordings are Toots Thielemans, Dick Garcia (guitar), Cal Tjader, Joe Roland (vibes), Israel Crosby, George Duvivier (bass), Bill Clark, Percy Brice (drums) and Armando Peraza (bongos/conga).

In June of 2007, George Shearing became Sir George Shearing when he was conferred the honor of Knighthood by The Queen at Buckingham Palace for his contribution to music. And following was his sentiments upon his conferment and I quote...

"I don't know why I'm getting this honor...I've just been doing what I love to do....My mind keeps flashing back on my beginnings as pianist playing in a pub for the equivalent of $5.00 a week. What a journey it has been from that pub to Buckingham Palace. Receiving such an honor as a Knighthood might also show young people what can be achieved in life if one learns his craft and follows his dreams."

Congratulations Sir George! He surely deserves the accolade and most of all the title. He's truly one of the most reputable, highly-regarded and revered musicians in terms of awards, honors and recognitions bestowed upon him, apart from his exceptional piano artistry.

the best of another genius, (i feel most musicians are geniuses). i saw him in seattle in 1954 (i think). his service dog was lying next to the piano enjoying the music with everyone else. this is one of the best nostalgia jazz cd's out there. rc

This is the sound you were homesick for: a lovely George Shearing piano with the dominant vibraphone that came to characterize his music and that served as a background for all our romantic memories. Wonderful!

The CD Definitive George Shearing arrived on time and in excellent condition. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the CD. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys jazz music with a Latin beat.
