Laura  performed by  George Shearing  (1959)
Composed by David Raksin
Arranged by Billy May
Recommended by Mike [profile] on Wednesday 31st March 2004

A really beautiful arrangement of this classic film number which I just found out was written in 1944, not the 1950s as I had always thought. Superb orchestral parts move in and out of the texture, through which a lot of harmonic interest not present in other versions is heard. Shearing's divine pianistic touch is shown at several key moments. I don't always like Shearing's recordings, but this one is special.

from White Satin (Capitol ST1334)
available on CD - The Best of George Shearing (Capitol)

Other Versions: André Previn, mid 50's
