Best of Shearing AND Kings Singers


This is a fantastic recording. There are interesting arrangements from some of the best popular music arrangers, including Richard Rodney Bennett, Paul Hart and Daryl Runswick, not to mention Shearing's great new 5/4 version of his best-loved song Lullaby of Birdland, which begins with a jazz version of Brahms' Lullaby.
The Kings Singers are in fine form, with their flawless intonation and meticulous attention to creating a great sound.
Each track features just the sextet, Shearing and a double bass (played by Neil Swainson), except for One For My Baby, which adds John Harle on saxophone. That track is one of the three terrific Daryl Runswick arrangements included on the album.
Other stand-outs are:
The-Half-of-It-Dearie Blues, which sounds very similar to their much earlier version of it, i.e. sensitive and sensuous.Gershwin's The Real American Folk Song (is a rag)Daryl Runswick's interpretations of I Got Rhythm and Anyplace I Hang My HatOver the Rainbow
It is worth getting Amazon to hunt for this album for you: it is one of the very best of many fine albums the performers have made. Getting them together for this disc was a first-class idea.

This is an awesome CD


Wow, over 2,600 reviews of this CD. That should say something right there that this guy has definitely awakened something in the American public, be it good or bad, that so many people feel the need to write a review; even those who obviously haven't bought the CD or listened to it and are just over here stating their opinion of the phenomenon of Clay. Perhaps some disgruntled fans whose favorite artists aren't doing as well.
That said, I must say that this CD is a true gem. Clay Aiken is a phenomenal talent and his handling of the songs on this CD are stellar. And to think that this is his debut CD and he's only been in the music business since May of this year. Again, phenomenal is the only word to use here to describe this CD, these songs and this performer.
