Too Marvelous for Words, Vol. 3

The third volume in a series of unissued recordings that Emarcy began issuing in the late 1980s over a decade after Erroll Garner's death comes from a previously unknown 1954 record date. Like all of his trio dates, the rhythm section, including bassist Wyatt Ruther and drummer Eugene Heard, strictly provides a supporting role for the pianist. This date is a bit different than many of Garner's releases, as it includes a piano novelty (Zez Confrey's "Kitten on the Keys"), a brisk take of the normally placid "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" and other pieces one wouldn't usually associate with him. More than a few of the old songs present on this session were recorded by the great Art Tatum, so it is possible that Garner was exposed to them through the virtuoso pianist's recordings, though Garner never deviates from his trademarked approach to the piano. Like other volumes in this series of collectable Garner CDs, this disc disappeared from print with a few years of its 1990 release, so it will be somewhat challenging to find.
