This out of print Capitol LP is one of George Shearing's mood music albums. He performs 11 pieces drawn from classical music and features his piano in the spotlight. Shearing did the arrangements himself for strings, French horns, and woodwinds (the personnel is unidentified), but, overall, the performances never rise above the level of sleepy background music. The music is well played and pleasant overall but not particularly memorable, and certainly not very stimulating.
