Coming up tonight on Jazz After Dark:

A ‘new’ album from Erroll Garner is always something to celebrate! A 1964 live recording from the Royal Concert Hall in Amsterdam, “mixed and mastered from new transfers of the original 3-track analog tapes found in Garner’s personal archive,” was just released in 2018. We’ll hear three selections.

Our other featured performer is Sonny Stitt, prolific sax player from the early 1940’s to the early 1980’s. Plus works by Eva Cassidy, Johnny Hodges, Oscar Peterson with Lester Young, Ella Fitzgerald, Rob Agerbeek , and Monty Alexander.
