Jazz After Dark September 29 2015

In 1955 jazz pianist Erroll Garner released Concert By The Sea, a live concert recorded in Carmel. It became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time. Sixty years later, Sony Legacy has released an expanded version with 11 new songs. Garner will be our featured artist in the second half tonight, with four selections from that album. In the first half we feature Benny Carter, with four selections spanning 1936 - 1976. Gerry Mulligan, Chico Hamilton, Buddy DeFranco, and vocals by Nancy Wilson and Ella Fitzgerald (doing Garner's classic composition Misty) round out the program.
