¡ Pues vaya !

just another blog



Buscando el otro día una canción que regalar, me dí cuenta que el autor de los más famosos temas de jazz, ese hombre que no sabía leer música, el hombre que compuso “Misty” (con letra de Johnny Burke) que fue un número uno para cinco cantantes diferentes entre 1959 y 1975, Errol Garner, estaba ayuno de música que descargar gratuitamente.

Bueno, pues eso se acabó. Aquí puedes descargar unos álbunes de este genial pianista precursor de gente como Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck o Cy Coleman de aquel que dijeron que “era el primer pianista con dos manos”.

MoonglowReviewReview by William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide. This midpriced reissue presents 27 minutes’ worth of early Erroll Garner, ten tracks originally released on Savoy Records. Only “Somebody Loves Me,” on which the pianist is accompanied by bassist John Levy, Jr., and drummer George Dellart, is from 1945; the rest of the tracks, also pop and jazz standards, date from 1949 and feature John Simmons on bass and Alvin Stoller on drums. In his mid-twenties, Garner is already an accomplished improviser, even though the time restrictions of the original 78 r.p.m. singles prevent him from really showing what he can do. The masters have been sonically cleaned, but the sound still reflects the age of the recordings. Nevertheless, this is an inexpensive way to hear a master in his youth.

Memories of youReview Review by Thomas Bartlett,eMusic. This 25-track compilation of some of jazz legend Erroll Garner’s earliest recordings (from ’45 to ’48) provides a good introduction to a prodigiously skilled and prolific pianist. Garner was a stylistic anomaly of the bebop era – he certainly absorbed many of bop’s harmonic advances (as well as making a few of his own), but his style remained rooted in swing. His left hand famously beat out chords like a swing guitarist, while his right hand roamed free, effortlessly executing virtuoso runs and arpeggios, all with a disruptive rhythmic playfulness that was absolutely inimitable. Garner’s enduring popularity is probably due largely to his unabashed love of melody, and to the flowery melodic embellishments that give his playing an air of grand, old-world decadence. Here, playing either solo or with a trio, he’s at his romantic best on ballads like David Raksin’s “Laura,” but he also thrills in a spikier, more aggressive mode, as on the Garner original “Trio.”

Concert by the sea

En 1950, Garner ficha para Columbia y con ese sello aparece su disco mas reputado y el que hoy sigue siendo el disco de piano de jazz más vendido del mundo: el celebérrimo y espléndido “Concert By The Sea” lo que además le reportó el titulo honorífico por Down Beat de músico del año en 1958.
