That Shearing Sound

Ed Love, host of Jazz Destinations (listen here), is on a George Shearing kick. I don't really know Shearing's music, but there are some sweet sounds in tonight's set, including a version of Bill Evans' "Very Early." A nice way to come down off Ravel. That's Steve Nelson on vibes, who last I heard was playing with bassist Dave Holland.

Update. Turned out to be not such a high energy night on the Ed Love show. The best jazz radio host by far is Bob Parlocha (see this list of stations) from Public Radio Fan. But I listen to all kinds of music, especially jazz, but really all kinds of music.
