As the title says, this CD contains the original version of Garner's classic track "Misty", plus a good dozen standards done in Garner's unique style, which has been copied so often that it is now ubiquitous. Several great Garner originals on here too... like the hot "7-11 Jump". This CD was also remastered, and sounds terrific. If you like Erroll Garner, you'll be sure to like this one.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Erroll Garner was one of the all-time Olympian greats of jazz piano, at once time capable of supporting a record label singlehandedly--while himself being supported by the thick New York phonebook to which he attributed the leverage and power he exerted over his instrument--a mastery so complete that, without the benefit of extra musicians or digital technology, he practically replicated the sound of an entire orchestra (I suspect most listeners aren't even conscious of the tracks where he dispenses with bass and drums in favor of solo, unaccompanied Erroll). What's somewhat disappointing, even disturbing, is to hear so little of him these days--even on the precious few remaining jazz shows. At one time, Ted Williams, a Garner fan who had taken over managerial duties of the Washington Senators, had his players practice to the thunderous, irresistible propulsion of the Garner earth-moving machine.

"Concert by the Sea" is, of course, the one to start with, belonging in any short list of ten if not five essential jazz piano albums. After that, it's remarkable that a musician capable of attaining the singular heights of the concert in Carmel, California, seemingly was incapable of doing anything less on album after album. So in one sense, it makes sense to download your favorite Garner tracks and settle for assembling your own anthology.

Still, if like me, you appreciate extras like dates, contexts, musicians' and composers' names, along with the satisfaction of a concrete object in your hands as testimony to the incredible sounds, it may make equal sense, and even save you a few bucks, to pick up a good "best of" collection. "Misty" isn't necessarily the best of the "best of" collections--in fact, it's actually a studio session, with bass and drums, recorded in 1954.

Recorded in 1954 in Chicago, and originally released under the title of "Erroll Garner Contrasts", this disc features a number of one-take recordings. Two tracks from the same session (but different original LP releases) have been added to this CD release: "Exactly Like You" and "Oh, Lady Be Good."

Although perhaps it was simply coincidence, the Chicago location of the recording date shows through in the bluesy edge that many of the tracks have. Most of the performances are a lot more bouncy and upbeat than other Garner recordings I've listened to, yet they retain a relaxed feeling.

According to the liner notes this is the very first version of "Misty" ever recorded. Apparently Garner composed it in his head while flying to the session. The version heard here is take 1. The featured trio is: Erroll Garner (p), Wyatt Ruther (b) and Eugene Heard (d).

How good it is to remember true greatness....Erroll Garner has always been one of my favorites. My father and I would sat and listen to him for hours at a time on Sunday afternoons and he never let us down...each time we heard one of his recordings was like the first time, there was something very much alive in Mr. Garner's musicianship.

I bought this CD just because of the original recording of Misty and I got hooked on it.

Misty of course is beautiful and we've all heard it many times. There are no other ballads like that on this album. Instead, you have a variety of different styles...lots of jazz. Not a fan of jazz but Garner does it better than anyone. I like that there is just the piano and percussion-not over orchestrated. Those old recordings allow you to hear the brush stroking the head of the drums and ilke that. What a talent!

Erroll Garner at his best. Still at the top of piano artist's greatest. First saw in St. Louis in the early 60's. He had it then, and still has it for those who appreciate great piano sounds.

Another wonderful collection of songs from the world's greatest jazz pianist. I have a large collection, and this is a great addition.
