Erroll Garner - Concert by the Sea


I haven't received a review copy of The Complete Erroll Garner Concert by the Sea recently released by Columbia/Sony/Legacy as a 3 CD package. I won't lose sleep, my 1955 LP has served me well over the years and, despite repeated playings and the odd drink spilled over it, it remains one of those iconic recordings that will forever, like the definitive recordings of Oscar, Art, Fats, Teddy, Earl and Bud, remain the benchmark for aspiring pianists with chops to aim at and one I'll play whenever I'm up, or whenever I'm down, or maybe just in between!
Even Oscar never played Where or When like this!
It's simply the business!
Lance.
