    Tribute to George Shearing

    The Vermont Jazz Center presents "Sounds of Shearing," an all-star group comprised primarily of alumni from the working bands of the great pianist, George Shearing. Under the leadership of vibraphonist Charlie Shoemake, the ensemble pays tribute to George Shearing, performing his elegant arrangements and bringing to life his legendary sound. This music typifies a refined version of jazz often called "cool jazz." His music was swinging but accessible, nimble but never loud, complex but beautiful. Shoemake and his associates take this to heart, they've distilled the essence and are revitalizing Shearing's music with passion, experience and expertise. The performers include Charlie Shoemake, vibraphone; Frank Potenza, guitar; Joe Bagg, piano; Luther Hughes, acoustic bass; Bill Goodwin, drums and special guest vocalist Sandi Shoemake.
