New Erroll Garner recordings unearthed

Sony Legacy Recordings are to release ‘Ready Take One’ containing new versions of known Garner classics plus six previously unreleased originals.

Producers of last year’s posthumous release of legendary pianist Erroll Garner’s full ’Concert By The Sea’ sessions have now followed it up with ‘Ready Take One,’ a collection of recordings dated between 1967 and 1971 containing unearthed new versions of known Garner classics plus six previously unreleased originals..

The 1956 ’Concert By The Sea’ re-release included a number of previously unheard pieces and put Garner at the top of jazz album charts, years after his death in 1977.

Conga player José Mangual drums up a very danceable beat, worthy of any Gilles Peterson club session, on a tune called ‘Wild Music,’ there’s a new ballad called ‘Back to You,’ new versions of ‘Misty,’ and ‘(I’m) Confessin’ (That I Love You)’ plus a new arrangement on Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol’s standard ‘Caravan.’

‘Ready Take One’ is available for pre-order on CD and vinyl, released September 30th 2016. Listen to ‘Wild Music’ below:
