The Octave Remastered Series represents the heart of Erroll Garner's recorded catalog. Spanning 12 albums recorded and released between 1959 and 1976, this collection of music is among the most important in the history of jazz. It represents an artist in his prime, with full creative and commercial control of his output following his break with Columbia Records. All of these albums were owned by Garner's Octave Records and licensed for release on a variety of iconic labels, including MGM, ABC, Philips, Mercury, Reprise, MPS, and more.
'That's My Kick' was Erroll Garner's first traditional studio album in five years and perhaps his most ambitious album ever as a composer. The selections were surely inspired by the new array of musicians assembled for the sessions, including percussionist José Mangual, who would go on to play with Garner for rest of his career. The electric atmosphere captured on tape here is at times raucous and always palpably joyful.
