Erroll Garner-Nightconcert

Sep 2, 2018

Errol Garner was a Jazz pianist and composer who inspired his audience and transcended genre. He emerged from Pittsburgh's George Westinghouse High School, as did Billy Strayhorn and Ahmad Jamal. He left us too soon in 1977 aged only 53, and in many ways is lost to contemporary Jazz listeners. Marcus Roberts may come close at times to the amazing keyboard touch of Garner.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Roshawn, a single mother who found herself homeless and luckily received support from The Nicholas House.  I also speak with Dennis Bowman, the executive director of The Nicholas House. 

Roshawn explains that she became homeless after a family member who provided her with a place to live was evicted. Her family then moved into an extended stay facility. This option proves to be exceptionally expensive, with monthly rates sometimes more than rent or a mortgage.
