Baubles, Bangles and Beads by George Shearing

The 1953 Broadway Musical ‘Kismet’ contained the Wright and Forest song ‘Baubles, Bangles and Beads’. Many top singers recorded this interesting tune but the George Shearing version from the album ‘Shearing with Strings and Things’ is our choice for his exquisite piano solo that was pure jazz. Shearing sometimes strayed into sweetness but he never strayed into vulgarity, ugliness or children’s music. His music was always aimed at grown-ups.
