This CD has the 1952 George Shearing Quintet featured in top form on a full set of previously unreleased radio broadcasts emanating from Birdland. In addition to performing some of their hits (including "Lullaby of Birdland" and "September in the Rain"), the group interprets some lesser-known material. Guest artist Teddi King is in top form during her four appearances; guitarist Toots Thielemans has a couple of his earliest harmonica solos on "Don't Blame Me" and "Body and Soul," and vibraphonist Joe Roland shows how underrated a soloist he was. During the announcements between songs, Shearing is often quite humorous, at one point imitating a half-dozen different pianists (including Erroll Garner and Teddy Wilson). All in all, this is a highly enjoyable release.
