This installment in the Jazz Icons series of memorable jazz performances captures two concerts by legendary musician Erroll Garner recorded in 1963 and 1964. Some of the songs featured in the performances include I Get a Kick Out of You, Misty, Sweet and Lovely, and more. One of the most distinctive of all pianists, Erroll Garner proved that it was possible to be a sophisticated player without knowing how to read music, that a creative jazz musician can be very popular without watering down his music, and that it is possible to remain an enthusiastic player without changing one's style once it is formed.
Erroll Louis Garner (1923-1977) was an American jazz pianist and composer known for his swing playing and ballads. His best-known composition, the ballad "Misty", has become a jazz standard. Scott Yanow of Allmusic calls him "one of the most distinctive of all pianists" and a "brilliant virtuoso".
