George Albert Shearing - GAS the DJ - Feat. Emily Remler

For 18 months in the mid-1980s, pianist George Shearing had a gig as a disc jockey on WNEW-AM in New York City.

On his two hour Sunday night show, he would often play live in the studio on a Baldwin Hamilton spinet piano between spinning discs.

He also featured guest stars on his program and such was the occasion on April 20, 1986 when guitarist Emily Remler joined him on the broadcast.

Emily performed three numbers: "Drume Negrita" [solo guitar] and "Alone Together" and "Billie's Bounce" with George.

All three are combined on the soundtrack to the following video.
