Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph from article dated March 7, 1963 shows musician George Shearing at his piano in the den of his Toluca Lake Home as he tapes his radio show. The article partially reads, "Listeners will hear Shearing 'doodling' on the piano as he introduces recordings. Then he plays an introduction on the piano appropriate to the next artist--what he calls 'dovetailing.' 'Where I finish is where they start,' he explained."; See images #00109440 through #00109441 for all photos in this series.
