“Always a two-handed pianist with masterful technique whose background in swing taught the value of caressing and uplifting melodies, George Shearing is an exquisite interpreter of ballads. Ballad Essentials draws its dozen selections from ten of the pianist’s Concord releases…Only a mature master can create at this level, making such inventive use of space, pauses, and every note he plays. George Shearing, who has been a major jazz artist for over 60 years, proves once again that he is a timeless jazz giant.” -Scott Yanow, Author of Swing, Bop, Afro-Cuban Jazz, and The Trumpet Kings.
