That Fresh Feeling! - George Shearing

Waltz For Sheba
That Fresh Feeling!
George Shearing
Capitol Records ST 2567
1966

From the back cover: This album might aptly have been titled Shearing Revisits Shearing, for in it he plays new Shearing versions of songs that first introduced him to America. These are by no means painstaking note-for-note recreations. These are fresh new versions of Shearing Landmark tunes – such immediately identifiable Shearing hits as "Don't Blame Me," "The Breeze And I." "We'll Be Together Again," "Pick Yourself Up," and many more.

Possibly the best Shearing album I've listened to. Timeless, rich sounding light jazz arrangements.
