Info for Continental Experience

„In spite of the dismal result from The Way We Are, an earlier project for BASF by the George Shearing Quintet & Amigos, this seven-piece group once again recorded for the label but stuck this time to a dozen standards instead of inane '70s pop songs as on the earlier record. While the results are greatly improved, this LP hardly measures up to the level of playing on Shearing Quintet recordings of the '40s, '50s, '60s, or the revived quintet of 2000. Part of the problem is the lack of soloists in addition to the leader and the incessant and generally extraneous Latin percussion. In spite of the very strong mix of songs -- including 'I'll Be Around,' 'Don't Blame Me,' 'East of the Sun,' and 'The Nearness of You' -- the rather conservative arrangements make this a relatively rare George Shearing LP -- one that jazz fans can safely bypass.“ (Ken Dryden, AMG)
