By J. Lovins HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on October 25, 2000
Format: Audio CD
Concord Jazz presents two recordings capturing the duo magic of the George Shearing and Brian Torff partnership..."Blues Alley Jazz" and "On A Clear Day". Shearing with his unique piano style, and Torff with his incredible bass-playing...for the first time on one 2-CD special-priced package "LULLABY OF BIRDLAND", is a "jazz collectors" dream.
There are too many delights to enumerate, but if I may..."THE MASQUERADE IS OVER", unconventional rhythmic arrangement, works perfectly..."FOR EVERY MAN THERE'S A WOMAN", great Harold Arlen tune, and Shearing's piano solo is simply haunting..."UP A LAZY RIVER", how about this Hoagy Carmichael 1931 standard, the duo with a "right on" moving to and fro, with a sort of boogaloo beat..."ON A CLEAR DAY", very different approach, almost new age with a touch of classical, but so impressionistic.
The final track on disc two, "LULLABY OF BIRDLAND", Shearing's own composition, with a bright new arrangement leaves nothing more to be said, except the two could go on forever...and thanks to Concord Jazz, THEY WILL!
Total Time: Disc One 45:45 on 9 Tracks & Disc Two 47:38 on 9 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD2-4927...(2000)

Breathtakingly beautiful! What an excellent CD to be quietly playing in the background for a party or dinner. It puts you in a good/happy mood. It is also such cheerful music to listen to when you are alone and just want to relax.
