Artist profile(s) :

George Shearing , Joe Williams


George Shearing / Joe Williams

The name Joe Williams evokes more than half a century of inspired singing. So its a living legend that's back at the Festival after a long absence of five years. He's sung with them all: with Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton and of course with the Count Basie Orchestra as resident soloist from 1954 to 1961. You're in for the best of the 1950s in the company of one of that period's most renowned crooners.

As for George Shearing, he flirted for a long time with the swing piano of the 40s. Then he experimented with various styles, trying out everything from Afro-Cuban to jazzing up classical music (he acquired enormous experience in the latter). Since the 80s, he's favoured the duo, collaborating with Carmen McRae, Marian McPartland and Jim Hall, among others. Joe Williams and George Shearing: history in the making!
