Jazz Legends Joe Williams and George Shearing Coming Soon on DVD!

VIEW Video, a producer and publisher of Music, Performing Arts, and other documentary programs, announced the October 26th release of two new Jazz DVDs, expanding their ever-growing and award-winning Jazz DVD Collection:

GEORGE SHEARING: LULLABY OF BIRDLAND
JOE WILLIAMS: A SONG IS BORN


GEORGE SHEARING: LULLABY OF BIRDLAND

George Shearing is among the most popular and respected musicians of all time. His splendid "locked hands" technique, coupled with a tender touch have made him one of the few pianists with a recognizable sound. An improviser with a flair for style and melodic elegance, many musicians have credited him with "opening up their ears to the beauties of tone."

Finally, see the legendary jazz pianist in his only full-length concert performance, magnificently filmed in 1991 at the beautiful Paul Masson Winery. Shearing’s artistry is now captured forever, as he and bass sensation Neil Swainson caress the ballads of Rodgers & Hart and Hoagy Carmichael, and swing to the bebop of Charlie Parker.

DVD Bonus Features include: Trivia Subtitles, Shearing Biography, Bonus Historic Video Performance, and Instant Access to Songs and Instrumental Solos.


JOE WILLIAMS WITH GEORGE SHEARING: A SONG IS BORN

Since his first hit Every Day I Have The Blues, as the singer of the Count Basie Band, Williams’ vocal excellence and impeccable taste have resulted in the universal appeal that has won him a Grammy, numerous other awards and polls including the Downbeat Critics’ and Readers’ Polls.

Whether it’s the blues, romantic ballads or contemporary music, Joe Williams has attained fame as a singer’s singer. Performing with legendary jazz pianist George Shearing, this is a rare dream collaboration of two musical giants. At the peak of their musical powers in 1991, this is Joe’s first concert DVD. Other musicians include Neil Swainson on bass and Paul Humphry on drums.
