Shearing In Hi Fi

Shearing In Hi Fi
George Shearing Quintet
MGM Records E3293

According to the Wikipedia Shearing Discography this LP was the last one Shearing made for MGM before going to with Capitol and onto some of his best known covers featuring sexy sophisticated women.

This cover is a great atomic age design but I don't know if this design captures the content. The cover is pushing the new age of "Hi Fi" rather then what Shearing was all about. As usual, this is a great Shearing light jazz.  The last track, Drume Negrita, is a touch exotica.
