Satin Brass - The George Shearing Quintet With Brass Choir

Chelsea Bridge
Satin Brass
The George Shearing Quintet With Brass Choir
Produced by Dave Cavanaugh
Capitol Records ST1326
1960

Here's another installment in the series of great Shearing Capitol cheesecake covers. The "brass" angle works, adding a layer of cool to the Shearing small combo approach.

From the back cover: George points out: "Having worked with just the Quintet for so long, I just felt the desire to have a big-band sound that boots you in the back!"
