I happen to be an older black male and had never heard of Don Shirley until I saw Green Book. The Ed Sullivan Show usually introduced artists of this caliber to America but I don't remember ever seeing him perform on that show or any TV show. I'm glad Green Book introduced me to him but I knew enough not to buy the movie soundtrack, which doesn't do him justice, and instead purchased Love Songs. It's a classic and the sound quality is good. I am surprised that other reviews have not mentioned his spellbinding 10 minute version of The Man I Love. That alone is worth the price of the CD and I don't know how his arms didn't fall off after the way he played it.
