About This Show

Composer and pianist George Shearing rose to prominence in the late 1940s with his signature “Shearing sound”: block chords backed by the band playing in tight unison. Shearing, who was blind, composed over 300 tunes and performed for 3 U.S. Presidents and the Queen of England. He performs “Yesterdays” and plays and sings “After You,” and duets with McPartland on “We’ll Be Together Again.” And “Indiana”.
