Over to The Blue Note club in Chicago for this installment of the weekend Downbeat. George Shearing and his Quintet, recorded and broadcast by NBC Radio on July 11, 1953.
One of the major forces in the Cool School of Jazz in the early 1950’s, Shearing was active all the way up almost to the time of his passing in 2011. Here he is in the midst of his meteoric rise at one of the most famous Jazz clubs in the U.S.
A mellow end to the weekend, you must admit.
