Greensleeves - George Shearing (Complete Piano Transcription)

Jazz pianist George Shearing plays solo piano on this complete transcription of the traditional Irish folk song "Greensleeves" from the album "My Ship" released in 1974.

Song description. 
The solo is played over seven choruses in total. 
The first chorus is a simple but emotionally rich monophonic melody for the right hand only. 
In the second chorus, the melody follows the main melody of the right hand with a delay of one bar in the octave of the left hand in a canon-like style. 
The third chorus is a baroque style with lots of ornamental trills, and the inner voices move with a lively movement in the basic three voices. 
In the fourth chorus, the melody is finally reharmonized in jazz harmony (restructuring of the chord structure), supported by a stylish chord progression. 
The atmosphere changes again in the fifth chorus, where the main melody of the first half moves with two voices, and the second half is sung with block chords blending the chords in a glittering octave. 
The sixth chorus finally becomes George's quintessential jazz, with a fine and dynamic exchange of phrases in a swinging tempo. 
The final seventh chorus brings the song to a profound ending. 
Please enjoy the lustrous sound of George Shearing.
