MG-20009: Errol Garner At The Piano

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/gold Mercury type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG 20009A 1
SIDE-B MG 20009B 1



Comments

Thin jacket sleeve (with folding cover at one side). Heavy-weight disc.

This may be the first cover design (another cover design known to exist).

Inside The Groove

Erroll Garner's very first session on Mercury label.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Side-A of this album was recorded in 1945. This session was the first Mercury recording for Erroll Garner. Also, this was the first Jazz recording by Mercury label (Mercury was founded in 1945!).

Side-B contains two trio sessions recorded in 1946. Surprisingly, Erroll had already built his own unique style.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
