On the Sunny Side of the Strip / on Stage [Import]
Digitally remastered two-fer containing the George Shearing Quintet's two amazing live performances recorded in California in March of 1958 (conga drummer Armando Peraza is added as a sixth member on some numbers). Included here in their entirety, the two concerts feature the exact same personnel, showcasing Toots Thieleman's, who is heard here mostly on guitar, rather than on harmonica. These shows were originally issued on the classic albums on the Sunny Side of the Strip and Shearing on Stage! Masterjazz.
