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.

Atlanta-based Jazz Rennaissance Man Joe Gransden has a new record out on Cafe 290 Records, Go Getta. The title track comes courtesy of Friend of  Jazz 91.9 WCLK Kipper Jones, and features a solo turn from Kenny G.   

Gransden has wanted to lead his own big band since his youthful days as fourth trumpet in the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. On Go Getta he brings together his big band, seen live locally by many ATL Jazz fans, for a tight, swinging set of 14 songs.
