After 60 years, Erroll Garner is now being recognized as not only a pioneer within the jazz community but an important composer whose brilliance influenced music history.
Iconic Jazz artist Erroll Garner's greatest concert album was already one of the best selling jazz albums of all time. The newly expanded album, The Complete Concert By The Sea, released jointly by Sony Legacy and Octave Music Publishing Corporation on September 18, 2015 - in celebration of the concert's 60th anniversary, debuts at #1 on Billboard's Jazz chart and #93 on the Top 20.
The set contains the complete live concert recording including 11 previously unreleased tracks, the original edited Columbia release from 1956 (digitally restored and remastered at The Magic Shop, NYC using the Plangent Process) and bonus material including announcer Jimmy Lyons and interviews with the Erroll Garner trio: Denzil DaCosta Best, Eddie Calhoun, and Garner himself, recorded directly after the concert.
The complete live concert recording – newly uncovered by the Erroll Garner Jazz Project and digitally remastered in its entirety after six decades – is produced by Guggenheim® Award-winning jazz pianist and Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Pittsburgh Geri Allen and 4-time GRAMMY®Award-winning producer Steve Rosenthal.
