Sony Legacy and Octave Music Publishing Corporation will release Erroll Garner’s The Complete Concert By the Sea as a three-CD box set on September 18, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the original concert.

The complete live concert recording, which Legacy said in a press release was newly uncovered by the Erroll Garner Jazz Project, is being digitally remastered. The project is produced by pianist Geri Allen (who is also the Director of Jazz Studies at the University of Pittsburgh) and producer Steve Rosenthal. The box set contains the complete live Concert By the Sea, including 11 previously unreleased tracks, the original edited Columbia release from 1956 and bonus material, including interviews with the Erroll Garner trio: Denzil DaCosta Best, Eddie Calhoun and Garner himself, recorded directly after the concert.

Liner note writers include Allen, UCLA American Studies Professor Robin D.G. Kelley and jazz writer Dan Morgenstern.
