Review: This disc is pianist Dave Miller’s tribute to the late George Shearing, whom he credits for his interest in bebop. As an improviser, Miller is ingenious without trying too hard to be outré. His solos all have an inner logic to them. His method of keeping the performances short works in his favor; he does not overstay his welcome in any of these tracks, but says what he wants to and gets out.
