George Shearing Quintet • On The Sunny Side Of The Strip



Review by Scott Yanow
This is one of five live George Shearing Quintet. Superior to the pianist's studio mood music albums of the period, this set is quite bop-oriented with such songs as "Jordu," "Confirmation," "Bernie's Tune" and "Joy Spring" being given the Shearing treatment. Vibraphonist Emil Richards, guitarist Toots Thielemans, bassist Al McKibbon and drummer Percy Brice complete the quintet while as usual the congas of Armando Peraza help out on a couple of Latin pieces.


1. Jordu
2. As I Love You
3. Confirmation
4. The Nearness Of You
5. Mambo Inn
6. Bernie's Tune
7. Some Other Spring
8. Joy Spring
9. Drume Negrita
