Music that suggests the darkest corner of a smoky bar… the sweet wild mood of a Latin Escapade
For aficionados of Latin music, George Shearing plays these tropical tempos with a romantic touch all his own. He has long been a master of jazz with a Latin beat, and now, for the first time in a complete album, this special mastery finds fine, full expression. Backed by the colorful sounds of maracas, timbale, cloves, and conga drum, Shearing’s deft piano and his famed quintet make music that is sultry indeed; it will lure even the shyest dancer to the floor, and thoroughly delight the listener who does not choose to dance.
