George Shearing and Hank Jones have always been very well-rounded pianists fully capable of playing unaccompanied solos. Their unique matchup as a two-piano duo on this Concord release works surprisingly well for the two pianists manage to stay out of each other’s way and the ensembles are not overcrowded. The pianists tackle colorful material including “Angel Eyes,” and Thelonious Monk’s “I Mean You,” an original apiece, Mary Lou Williams’s “Lonely Moments,” “Star Eyes” and “Confirmation,” and the results are swinging and tasteful. This somewhat obscure Concord release is worth investigating.
