5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Shearing AND Kings Singers 31 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic recording. There are interesting arrangements from some of the best popular music arrangers, including Richard Rodney Bennett, Paul Hart and Daryl Runswick, not to mention Shearing's great new 5/4 version of his best-loved song Lullaby of Birdland, which begins with a jazz version of Brahms' Lullaby.
The Kings Singers are in fine form, with their flawless intonation and meticulous attention to creating a great sound.
Each track features just the sextet, Shearing and a double bass (played by Neil Swainson), except for One For My Baby, which adds John Harle on saxophone. That track is one of the three terrific Daryl Runswick arrangements included on the album.
Other stand-outs are:
The-Half-of-It-Dearie Blues, which sounds very similar to their much earlier version of it, i.e. sensitive and sensuous.
Gershwin's The Real American Folk Song (is a rag)
Daryl Runswick's interpretations of I Got Rhythm and Anyplace I Hang My Hat
Over the Rainbow
It is one of the very best of many fine albums the performers have made. Getting them together for this disc was a first-class idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kings Singers 3 Jan 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
As usual inspiring, brilliant performances of material I would not normally associate with the Kings Singers. A happy reminder of a live concert performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put A Smile On! 3 Feb 2009
By Mike Mac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a mix - Shearing and the King's Singers! Shearing is always A+, and the King's Singers do the magical, sometimes odd harmonies they're famous for. The song selection is outstanding, including some tunes I hadn't heard before (in that great 1930s Gershwin jazz style) and familiar standards. If this album doesn't put a smile on your face, you need to get your face fixed!
