Newstalgia Downbeat with The Erroll Garner Trio live at Basin Street in New York as broadcast on May 12, 1956.
June 12, 2011

Erroll Garner - pretty much turned Misty into a National Anthem.

Back to the classics in concert. This week it's the inimitable Erroll Garner and his Trio, live at Basin Street in "The heart of Manhattan" on May 12, 1956 and broadcast by CBS Radio to the rest of the country on that particular Sunday afternoon in May.

Well, you get to have that Sunday Afternoon with Erroll Garner too - Fifty-five years later and in June.

Better late than never, I suppose.
