This fabulous group will celebrate the legacy of the late, great pianist & composer GEORGE SHEARING, who would be celebrating his 100th birthday on August 13 (2019). They will honor his legacy by playing his most popular compositions ("Lullaby of Birdland" and "Conception") as well as some of Shearing's unique arrangements on well-known standards. This all-star group will also be presenting several tunes from Shearing's collaboration with vocalist Nancy Wilson.
