Poodle Mambo: George Shearing

The late George Shearing, a superb piano player, often dipped into Latin jazz with his Quintet. In honor of all those American men who now trot dutifully behind their wives each evening with a poodle or two or three on leashes we recommend Shearing’s recording of ‘Poodle Mambo.’ This is not a masterpiece but the Quintet makes a neat job of his composition and it is grown-up music.
