maybe recorded in 1955 but still the biggest selling jazz piano album and to my knowledge always been on sale.once you hear it you'll know why.this is just so cool it hurts.the highlite,if i must pick one ,is for me , his version of autumn leaves which he starts with his usual flourish and then melts into the main tune.makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!all good tracks and even if your not usually a lover of "jazz piano" and erroll garner is not your usual cup of tea (as he's not usually mine) i strongly advise you to give it a go you'll thank me for it in the end.by the way where they get "seattle 1963" from i dont know as to my knowledge this was all recorded in one take ,live in carmel ,california 1955 and i dont see any extra tracks either as i had the original album.

Erroll Garner's Jazz 22 Aug 2007
By S J Buck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Errol Garner is almost unique in Jazz history in the way that he created a new style of playing his instrument, the Piano, which made him very successful (for a Jazz artist) but hardly any other musicians have copied his style. In fact there is only one other Pianist that I know of that conciously learnt to play in the style of Errol Garner and that was Dudley Moore (and he did it very well). There are a number of reasons for this, which would take too long to explain in a short album review.

On this fabulous live album from September 1955 Garner is accompanied by Eddie Calhoun on bass and Denzil Best on Drums. As with all Garner recordings there are his inspired Piano introductions to tunes, that really give you absolutely no clue as to what is coming next, but when the tune starts it all seem entirely logical.

Garner was wholly self-taught, so how on earth he managed to play at the virtuoso standard required on say 'Red Top' or 'I'll Remember April' is truly amazing. The key to his playing is the left-hand which is squarely on the beat, and 4 to the bar on the uptempo numbers, almost like a strumming guitarist - think Freddie Green from the Basie Orchestra. His right hand lagged behind the beat, or phrased around the beat which creates the dramatic style you can hear so well on this album.

I'm less keen on his ballad playing, its a little too florid for my taste, but its still fabulous, just not as fabulous as his uptempo playing which is as exciting as almost anythingelse you can hear in the history of Jazz.
Great Garner - the best place to start - Review by Simon Pilbrow 6 Dec 2014
By simonjp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recorded in 1955 and released the following year, this durable Erroll Garner recording remains a jazz piano trio tour-de-force almost 60 years later. Garner was a very mature stylist at 34 years, and his cohorts, bassist Eddie Calhoun and drummer Denzil Best, were about as used to their leaders’ trademark features and the constant unexpected twists and turns in his arrangements – rhythmical, key changes, reharmonisations - as they could be. The audience in Carmel California were witness to a concert that inspired as it built from the beginning to the end, and the recording which remained a much-loved jazz bestseller recording for decades afterward, captured the sound, spirit and atmosphere of this special trio performance that draws the listener in from the outset. Garner had a large stable of standard tunes in his repertoire and many of his own originals that he performed, apparently without warning to his colleagues, and would emerge from his quirky introductions and land in a key and then take off, and his bassist and drummer would have to fall in line and quickly assimilate to tune, tempo, key and wait for the many inevitable surprises along the way. Beginning with an up tempo ‘I’ll remember April’, Garner also includes a rhapsodic April in Paris with a coda that gently quotes ‘The Last Night I saw Paris’. Probably the most unique track is Autumn Leaves, in which he weaves a long ballad journey that expresses emotional breadth that is not possible at a faster tempo. His own ‘Mambo Carmel’, probably composed on the spot, shows a rhythmic variation on the characteristic four-to-the-bar, guitar strumming-like sound of his left hand, and the quirky coda remains a masterpiece of his bold and instantaneous creations. A delightful rendition of Gene Ammons’ happy blues ‘Red Top’ has Garner quoting Charlie Parker’s Now’s the Time and popping weasels. Erroll and his trio maintain the excitement fun throughout the concert, taking the listener through a rich tapestry of tempos, moods, colours and styles, always interesting, always Garner, and build to a climax with the final rapid-fire ‘Where or When’.

This recording is probably the best place for those previously uninitiated with Erroll Garner’s highly individual and brilliant piano playing to start, and although a time-capsule of a mid-period of his more than thirty-year career, playing, it stands tall in the jazz piano pantheon and should be in every collection. While some have criticized the original recording quality of the concert, it is transcended by the wonderful and enduring music which has lost none of its qualities with the passage of time.

Great music and musician 14 Mar 2012
By Giovi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Have been enjoying this great music since the CD arrived! I had this recording on an LP many years ago and was saddened that I was not able to hear it since I no longer had a vehicle to play LP's.....but there it was as a CD on Amazon!!! Erroll Garner, in my opinion, was one of the greatest jazz musicians in my lifetime....probably still is! If you enjoy jazz piano, you will love this CD!!!!

POOR EDITION 22 Feb 2009
By FRENCH JAZZ LOVER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was lucky enough to meet the marvelous Erroll Garner in 1973 after what would be his last appearance in France. I was learning piano, was really one ofte worse player ever but he showed me a few tricks. He also took more than an hour of his precious time to talk with me. Of course, we couldn't avoid mentionning talking about "Concert By The Sea" and I was more than surprised to learn that he wasn't happy with the LP. He was unhappy with the choice of the tunes.As an example, he wouldhave loved that his rendition of "Bernie's Tune" had been rejected against his will.

The second part of this CD is a compilation from concerts given in Seattle on August 20-25 1962 and originally issued as "One world concert". This is the second time this concert is reissued and amazingly, on both reissued, the best tune, "Movin' Blues", one of the swingest blus ever played by my favorite elf is missing.

So I strongly recommend that people wait for complete issues, specially considering that "the best is yet to come" and will be within 5 years.

The rediscovery of Errol Garner and Concert by the Sea 12 Jun 2008
By William L. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This music takes me back to college days, and my jazz fan-hood was in early bloom. Now in my old age I still love my jazz and this is one of the recordings I used to play a lot on my portable33 1/3 phonograph (remember those ? ).
He was a very fine play by ear type of performer, very creative with great rhythm and melodic content, and commucated great joy and emotion in the process. This is not elevator music, this is music for "flipping and rejocing " I owned many Garner LPs(as 33 1/3 disks were called) but this was always one of my favorites .
