This DVD was recorded live at the Ambassador Auditorium Pasadena, 1981 and features George Shearing on Piano & Brian Torff on Bass. Few musicians in the history of jazz have made such a lasting popular and world-wide impression as pianist George Shearing. Deified in the 1950s by Jack Kerouac in the novel On The Road, Shearing moved from early success in his native Britain to postwar New York where he captured the spirit of successive jazz generations and created a permanent place for himself in the Hall of Fame with his quintet's September in the Rain and his own quintessentially hip composition "Lullaby of Birdland".
Editor's Note
Recorded in Pasadena at the Ambassador Auditorium, this concert from 1981 perfectly illustrates why George Shearing is so revered throughout the jazz world. A swift rise to fame in the 1940s lead to Shearing becoming immortalized in Jack Kerouac's "On The Road," which in turn lead to a seemingly endless array of awards and plaudits for George and his music. This concert includes the songs "Have You Met Miss Jones," "Love For Sale," and more.
