Sleeve notes from George Shearing – Black Satin:

The satin-smooth Shearing sound has never been so expressive of its creator’s unique versatility as it is in this album. Augmented by rich instrumental backgrounds, here is an inspiring variety of distinctive moods: the subdued, lyrical rendering of a tender ballad set to an elegant chorus of strings;


the easy swinging rhythm of a popular song; the occasional lilt of a Latin tempo. Capturing the lush sophisticated setting that distinguished his highly successful “Velvet Carpet”, George Shearing with his own inimitable styling creates appealing music that will set a delightful backdrop for any romance — as suitable for the girl in blue gingham as it is for the lady in luxurious “Black Satin.”
