An amazing man and a great musician. I think , back in the 1940's and 1950's, the Shearing Quintet opened a door that allowed many to ease into a world they may have otherwise stayed clear of.
I still remember with a great deal of pleasure hearing George with Mel Tormé at the Royal Festival Hall.
Carmen McRae was on the bill too!

What a line up! one of my huge regrets is that I never managed to see Mel live.
