Octave Music continues to add to the posthumous discography of pianist Erroll Garner. Nightconcert, the label’s third archival Garner release in three years, will be available July 13 on CD and deluxe double vinyl, as part of Octave’s new partnership with Mack Avenue Records.
Nightconcert captures a midnight show at Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw on November 7, 1964. Garner was backed that night by the rhythm section he’d favored for nearly a decade, bassist Eddie Calhoun and drummer Kelly Martin. Together they played 13 selections from the Great American Songbook—including “Night and Day,” “Where or When,” “On Green Dolphin Street,” and “Laura”—as well as three Garner originals. One of the latter, “That Amsterdam Swing,” has never previously appeared on an album.
