I bought this record – The George Shearing Quintet And Orchestra – Black Satin Part 2 – not only for the compelling cover, it’s also a little unusual. The record is a 7″ Part 2 of a 3 part album. What the hell? Were they trying something new?
You can find the music pretty easily online (here, for example), so I won’t post the tracks for this one. It’s sound is a bit generic, although certainly smooth and pleasant. It’s the packaging that really piqued my interest.
George Shearing with his own inimitable styling creates appealing music that will set a delightful backdrop for any romance— as suitable for the girl in blue gingham as it is for the lady in luxurious “Black Satin.”
