Description
The 21 tracks of this lavish collection demonstrate many iterations of the "Shearing touch," with such popular favorites as "Blue Moon," "Sweet Lorraine," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "The Nearness of You," "Poinciana," "Sophisticated Lady," "It's Easy to Remember," and "So Rare," along with originals like "Cozy's Bop," "When Darkness Falls," "Consternation," and "The Fourth Deuce."

"This British LP features the young George Shearing during three early record dates. Three songs are piano solos from March 3, 1941, and there are two quartet numbers from June 22, 1944. Both of those sessions find Shearing very much playing swing la Teddy Wilson.... The seven selections from November 26, 1948, [are] rarities that Shearing cut when briefly back in his native England, one year before he hit it big with his quintet. These numbers (standards plus such boppish originals as 'The Man From Minton's' and 'To Be or Not to Bop') are more modern than the previous performances and feature the pianist showing what he had learned from associating with modernists in New York. Most of this valuable music has generally eluded reissue programs."All Music Guide
