George Shearing in Hollywood - mid 20th Century

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 97:

What did you think of Dave [Brubeck's] playing back then, before his quartet had been formed?

I heard him play while I was in Hollywood, and I heard him record solo. Dave could show restraint as well as that emotional release thatusually accompanies the last chorus of his solos.
