*** SELECTED AS ONE OF THE BEST JAZZ ALBUMS OF ALL TIME ***

THIS RELEASE INCLUDES THE COMPLETE CLASSIC ALBUM PLUS ANOTHER COMPLETE LIVE
PERFORMANCE AND THE ORIGINAL 1954 “MISTY” AS BONUS TRACKS!!

This album –Erroll Garner’s first live concert to ever enter the market– was one of the pianist’s most acclaimed and best selling recordings from the moment of its release. The combination between Erroll Garner’s and the audience’s enthusiasm certainly makes it a lively listening experience. Recorded after his reputation was already firmly established, this LP was made in a beautiful coastline area in an auditorium that had formerly been a church, with excellent acoustics.
As a complement to this exciting concert, however, we have included another live Garner performance, recorded a few years later, at Seattle’s World’s Fair, on August 20-25, 1963. He is featured once again in a trio setting, and the bass player is –as in the case of the 1955 concert– Eddie Calhoun. Kelly Martin is on drums here instead of Denzil Best. A jewel from this second performance is a live version of Garner’s most celebrated composition: “Misty”, which you can compare to the original 1954 studio version, added as a final bonus at the end of the CD.
