George Shearing (13 August 1919 – February 14, 2011) was a well-known jazz pianist and inventor of the famous "Shearing Sound": a form of smooth cocktail jazz characterised by block chords played on the piano along with similar chords played on the vibraphone. Shearing was born in the Battersea area of London, United Kingdom. Congenitally blind, he was the youngest of nine children. He started to learn piano at the age of three.

East of the Sun and West of the Moon" (Norwegian: Østenfor sol og vestenfor måne) is a Norwegian fairy tale.

George Shearing – Moon Over Miami. George Shearing Quintet – East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon). George Shearing Quintet – Polka Dots And Moonbeams. George Shearing – Blue Lou.

Shearing had reached his complete mastery of the piano as an instrument of continuous melodic and harmonic invention at this point in his career, and he is as dominant as Oscar Peterson in his busy attack. Shearing's reliance on the middle registers on these tunes - check "Have You Met Miss Jones?" and "Buccaneer's Bounce" for dynamite solos played entirely inside them - is remarkable, and reveals an attempt to create a new harmonic architecture across a smaller chromatic spectrum that could be manipulated by other instruments (vibes and guitar).
