Remembering George Shearing

One of my very first jazz influences, George Shearing, has passed.  George, Charlie Byrd, Dave Brubeck, and their intellectual style of jazz were among my favorites and very early additions to my record collection, some of which I still have, and still enjoy.

Rest in peace George.  Your music lives on in at least one heart.


  1. Just Beautiful. Thanks for turning me on - I 've been trying to learn about jazz for a couple of years now and this fellow is a keeper.

  2. Sad to hear of his passing.
    I had the pleasure of hearing him live once.


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
