Item is available through our marketplace sellers.



Volume 17 in the complete recordings of Erroll Garner as compiled and reissued by the Classics Chronological Series contains 19 magnificent performances recorded at Universal Recording Studios in Chicago and Fine Sound Studios in New York during the month of July 1954 and subsequently released on the Mercury albums Contrasts and Mambo Moves Garner. Supported by Wyatt Ruther, Eugene "Fats" Heard,and Afro-Caribbean drum master Candido Camero, Garner is able to express himself with panache, good taste,and skillful reckless abandon. Perhaps the most thrilling surprise in this package is a romping rendition of "I've Got to Be a Rug Cutter," a tune popularized years earlier by Duke Ellington and Ivie Anderson. Most Erroll Garner recordings from the '50s are enthusiastically inspired, exciting,and at times dazzling. The music within this collection is some of the best that Garner ever made.
