Jazz great George Shearing proved instrumental in popularizing a piano-playing technique called “locked-hands style,” although Milt Buckner is most likely its inventor.
“Locked-hands style,” which became known as “Shearing's voicing,” is a form of block chord with a double melody. In it, the melody is duplicated on the left after chords are maintained in the right hand. You can see a great example of it in this performance of “Swedish Pastry.”
