Velvet Carpet - George Shearing

Autumn Leaves
Velvet Carpet
The George Shearing Quintet
With String Choir
Arrangements by Dennis Farnon and George Shearing
Orchestrator and Conductor: Dennis Farnon
Capitol Records T720

From Billboard - September 1, 1956: Shearing, for the first time, with strings. The sound produced is rich and plush – of more appeal to the pop customer than to jazz connoisseurs. Material consists of standards mostly unrecorded by him before; "September Song," "Autumn Leaves," A Foggy Day," "I'll Close My Eyes," etc. A colorful, romantic program that can be expected to have broad general appeal.
