Erroll Garner was one of the great jazz piano artists in mid-century America. “Erroll Garner was one of a kind… He swung mightily, yet he stood outside the swing tradition; he played orchestrally, and his style was swooningly romantic, yet he could be as merciless on a tune as Fats Waller… His tumbling, percussive, humorous style was entirely his own.” (Cook and Morton, Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD, p. 549.)
