Does anyone know of either a piano arrangement of George Shearing's Long Ago and Far Away or an actual transcription. It is on his "Ballad Essential's" album and it is breathtaking. Thanks

I have several of George Shearings books. I don't have them with me now but I don't recall that particular song.

I love his arrangements. He manages to get such great sounds from basically a 4-part voicing.

I do like that song and might consider making an arrangement similar to his style.

Many of his arrangements are 2 pages. While there is a lot to learn from those pages time would run out very quickly if those ideas could not be extended.
