He was born 30. Jan. 1922 in Brooklyn, New York.

He began his professional life as a disc jockey.

He promoted a historic jazz concerts with Benny Goodman, Dizzy Gillespie and Shorty Rogers.

Their concerts were held at at the Shrine and the Civic Center and the Hollywood Bowl.

Martha Glaser was also a pioneer in the concept of musical artists owning the copyrights.

So she maintained her tireless effort to keep Erroll’s  right.

In 1970 Clint Eastwood produced “Play Misty for Me”.

playmistyforme-posterart_cr

The title of film was derived from the Garner’s “Misty.”

“Misty” plays a key role in the plot of the movie.

She argued for all rights that are associated with “Misty”.

Ms.Glaser and Erroll Garner were involved in a long struggle with Clint Eastwood.

“Misty” plays a key role in the plot of the movie.

Consequently Clint Eastwood and Universal paid $25,000 to use the song in the film.

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

Pitt Jazz Studies Director at University of Pittsburgh is Geri Allen.

By Geri Allen’s efforts, “The Complete Concert by the Sea” was released including 11 previously unissued.

At that time Martha Glaser noticed that Jazz and civil rights advocacy was her reason for living.

Then she met pianist Erroll Garner.

Ms.Glaser was one of Garner’s biggest fans,and she had her innate business acumen.

She signed an exclusive contract with Erroll Garner in 1950.

Also she adopted the responsibility of managing not only served support for his personal life until his death.

She consistently strove to boost Garner’s confidence, even at the height of his success.
