George Shearing Working with Arrangers at Capitol

2 posts in this topic

On many of the Capitol albums featuring the quintet with some sort of orchestra or ensemble, the arrangements are co-credited to Shearing and an arranger.  

Does anyone know how this worked?  Would the arranger take the quintet's existing arrangements, with Shearing's chord substitutions and melodic variations, and create an arrangement around what the quintet was already doing? 

Does anyone know if the orchestras were recorded at the same time as the quintet, or if they were overdubbed later?

Sounds like it could be a proto-CTI approach, in concept at least. Play first, arrange the backing ensemble later.
