ERROL GARNER - SYMPHONY HALL
Looking back in order to look forward is fundamental to most art forms, maybe none more so than the profound art of jazz. In rare cases, such retrospection can reveal entirely new aspects of the art and its creator, redefining a legacy for a new generation. Such is the case with the genius of Erroll Garner. One of the most popular figures in jazz during his exceptional career, Garner's legacy is receiving a remarkable reinvigoration through the concerted efforts of Octave Music's Erroll Garner Project (EGP) and its partnership with Mack Avenue Music Group. Together they are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Garner's birth with an extraordinary three-tiered release focused on Garner's output from 1959 to 1975 and featuring a stunning 27-song previously unreleased 1959 concert recorded at Boston's Symphony Hall. Symphony Hall Concert (Single LP/CD). Previously unreleased 9-song compilation recorded live at Boston's Symphony Hall in 1959. Concert originally presented by famed promoter George Wein. Exclusive cover based on poster from Erroll Garner archive.
