Errol Garner left behind many hours of unreleased recordings when he died on Jan. 2, 1977.

Today I post about a new three-CD”The Complete Concert by the Sea”.

There was no plan to record the concert officially.

He was playing at the Sunset School in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif,in 1955.

When the concert began, Will Thornbury began to start on his mono reel-to-reel tape recorder.

In fact, he was a recording engineer for the Armed Forces Radio Network at that time.

Martha Glaser spotted the recorder’s reels turning backstage.

She grabbed the reels and insisted on taking possession of the recording tape.

Then the concert performance was released on 12-inch LP at Columbia Records in 1956.

However 11 songs in convenience of 12-inch LP was not released.

Martha Glaser was executor of the pianist’s estate.

When Glaser died two years ago, her niece, Susan Rosenberg, inherited the archive.

Susan Rosenberg donated the archive to University of Pittsburg.Go here
