Jazz Journal - Erroll Garner, January 1962

Welcome to the 5th in my series of 10 postings dedicated to Jazz Journal magazines from the early 1960's. Today's cover star is Erroll Garner (born:1923, died: 1977). Garner was an American Jazz pianist, probably most well knw for his ballard Misty. The inability to read music almost cost Garner his place in the Music Union, but eventually he was granted a special dispensation. During his career he released 10's of records, and played with Charlie Parker on the famous Cool Blues sessions.
