06/15/15 Sony Legacy to Release Erroll Garner’s “Concert By the Sea” as 3-CD Box Bonus material includes unreleased tracks and interviews

By JazzTimes

Sony Legacy and Octave Music Publishing Corporation will release Erroll Garner’s The Complete Concert By the Sea as a three-CD box set on September 18, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the original concert.

The complete live concert recording, which Legacy said in a press release was newly uncovered by the Erroll Garner Jazz Project, is being digitally remastered. The project is produced by pianist Geri Allen (who is also the Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Pittsburgh) and producer Steve Rosenthal. The box set contains the complete live Concert By the Sea, including 11 previously unreleased tracks, the original edited Columbia release from 1956 and bonus material, including interviews with the Erroll Garner trio: Denzil DaCosta Best, Eddie Calhoun and Garner himself, recorded directly after the concert.

Liner note writers include Allen, UCLA American Studies Professor Robin D.G. Kelley and jazz writer Dan Morgenstern.

The popularity of the album when it was new makes this more interesting to me than the music itself.

I have the album on vinyl and had always held off buying a CD copy because I was hoping they might one day come out with a version with some bonus tracks from the concert. This release far exceeds my wildest dreams! Now I can't wait for September! :D

Wow. I've never been a huge fan of this album. . . I'm strangely uninterested in this new reissue, but I'll be eager to read impressions.

So Martha Glaser () is gone and a more reasonable person is now in charge? About time.

I'll be interested to read comments about this. I never bought it because I thought there was other Garner out there that would appeal to me more.

When I was just beginning to explore jazz in the late-80s, I got a CD player for my birthday. To jump-start my collection, I decided to join the Columbia House Music Club. My first order:

- Erroll Garner - Concert by the Sea

- Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

- John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

- Duke Ellington - At Newport

I've loved Concert by the Sea -- and Erroll Garner -- ever since. :)

Same here. I've never really understood the attention that this record gets relative to other recordings by Erroll Garner, but maybe this reissue will do it for me.

$15.98 at Amazon for a 3CD set is more than reasonable. Not sure if this is a mistake, but I didn't hesitate to preorder at that price.

Thanks Lon! I think my problem was that I spelled Erroll with only one "l."

Have the vinyl and the cd. Though i like Garner this recording always disappointed, but I couldn't resist the price.

Wondering if the "rejected" material will be more interesting than the released material...maybe? No?

On the whole, this one vs Jamal @ Pershing, Jamal, no contest, but one thing I've learned is to never take Errol Garner for granted, nope, don't do that. So maybe Columbia released all the "safer" takes becuase they new it would have a good chance to go mainstream?

We shall see soon enough, and because, that price, ooh yeah, dat price yeah.

Think I'll wait and see what others think of the extra material, but the price does make it attractive.
