Erroll Garner was a jazz pianist with a very recognizable style. He had an amazing right hand that took melodies and molded them with chords borrowing from the orchestral style of the swing era. His style involved a very steady "strummed" left hand with the melodic right hand staying slightly behind the beat. His uptempo playing danced hard and his melodic ballads showed a distinct expressiveness that is unmistakably identifiable. Many identify him with his most famous piece, Misty. Listen and get to know this piece, Turquoise, as you become more familiar with this amazing jazz pianist.
