Light, Airy, & Swinging

LP (Item 31394) MPS, 1973 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Light, airy, and swinging – a perfect description of the charm of this George Shearing album from the 70s – one of the pianist's gems for the MPS label, who really helped George find a new sort of vibe at the time! Shearing opens up nicely in the trio setting here – with some surprisingly dynamic work on the piano at times, especially in comparison to the more careful sound of his 60s records – and the other players bring a new sort of soul to the record, with warm bass work from the great Andy Simpkins, and some rare non-Crusaders jazz work from Stix Hooper on drums. Titles include "Love Walked In", "Emily", "Beautiful Friendship", "Speak Low", "Once Upon A Summertime", and "Cynthia's In Love". (US pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blowin' The Blues Away
Blue Note, 1959. Good+
A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – and one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note. The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to arranging, and they managed to ... LP, Vinyl record album
