CD cover insert

Since Ron wrote the tune "Melody for George" dedicated to Shearing, it has been his intention to make a CD using the Shearing Sound as a tribute to George and as a thank you to him for inspiring Ron to take up the piano and become enthusiastic about jazz. The result is this album which reflects Ron's easy style of relaxing music that has proved so popular on his previous albums.

George Shearing died on 14th February 2011 aged 91. He became known for a piano technique known as "Shearing's voicing," a type of double melody block chord, with an additional fifth part that doubles the melody an octave lower. Ron replicates this sound on his Tribute album.
