"This is the first solo cd I have bought by George. I knew he was a great performer in trio and quartet settings, but I didn't know about his solo work. Well, I found out that he can do solo with greatness too.For this cd, I immediately heard "Echos of Dave McKenna" when I played this cd. This isn't a bad thing for Dave is one of my favorite jazz pianist. In the inlet George even talks about his sounding like Dave among other greats.Also this cd had some classical sounds. George tried to give a classical sound to "My Favorite Things". This turned out to be a good move.This cd had a pretty good repertoire. Based on this cd, i'm going to add more solo product of Georges' to my collection."
A purrfect cd

"This is the way jazz solo piano should be, although Shearing may not be as big of an improviser as say Earl Hines, his music is beautiful and melodiz and it's jazz at the same time."
