5.0 out of 5 stars HEARING SHEARING, 7 April 2014
This review is from: Four Classic Albums Plus (The Swingin's Mutual! / In The Night / Beauty And The Beat / Nat King Cole Sings - George Shearing Plays) (Audio CD)
The ten earliest tracks on this four-plus collection come from the 1955 MGM album “Cool Canaries” (from which “Nothing New Under the Sun” and “Adieu” have been omitted). Six come from 1952, with vocals by Teddi King, and conclude the first CD, two come from 1951 with Billy Eckstine and two from 1954 with the Ray Charles Singers which round off the second CD. All of the rest were issued originally by Capitol. “In the Night” was recorded in July 1957 and features Dakota Staton’s vocals on alternate tracks. The classic album, “Beauty and the Beat” was recorded with Peggy Lee in front of a live audience in Miami on 29th May 1959. (Note: It was subsequently reissued on a Capitol CD with two bonus tracks, but these are not included). “The Swingin’s Mutual” dates from mid 1960 and January 1961, and Nancy Wilson sings on alternate tracks, and finally, the Nat King Cole album dates from December 1961. It’s a varied and highly satisfying package.
