Artist: Shearing, George

Jazz pianist George Shearing's music and artistry are finally preserved forever with this classic DVD, George Shearing: Lullaby of Birdland, his only live, full-length concert performance on DVD. Magnificently filmed in 1991 at the beautiful Paul Mason Winery in California, Shearing’s legacy is now captured forever, as he and bass sensation Neil Swainson caress the ballads of Rodgers and Hart as well as Hoagy Carmichael, swing to the bebop of Charlie Parker, and perform Shearing’s original theme song for the famous night club “Lullaby of Birdland;” a composition that has become a standard of the Jazz repertoire and ensured the lasting legacy of the Grammy Award winning pianist extraordinaire.

 

"Listening to this great jazz pianist is a treat anytime, but watching

him in concert at the beautiful Paul Masson Winery in California

makes this a visual as well as audio treat."              - USA Today

 

George Shearing, although blind from birth, is among the most popular and respected musicians of all time. His splendid “locked hands” piano technique, coupled with a tender touch, has made him one of the few pianists with a recognizable sound. An improviser with a flair for style and melodic elegance, many musicians credit him with “opening up their ears to the beauty of tone.” This unparalleled DVD, George Shearing: Lullaby of Birdland, helps maintain and continue the Shearing legacy for future generations.
