NIGHTCONCERT, FROM THE DUTCH “NACHTCONCERT”

A MIDNIGHT JAZZ PERFORMANCE HELD AT THE ROYAL CONCERTGEBOUW IN AMSTERDAM, WIDELY CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE FINEST CONCERT HALLS IN THE WORLD.

AVAILABLE JULY 13

This recording of pianist Erroll Garner and his trio (Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums) was captured live at Concertgebouw on November 7, 1964. The material was mixed and mastered from new transfers of the original 3-track analog tapes found in Garner’s personal archive. We are delighted to be working with the same team of engineers who helped bring 2016’s Ready Take One to life. These songs have never been released in the United States on any format.


Listening to these recordings, one can sense the crowd’s excitement with each number. Midnight rolls around and everyone is wide awake, nodding, weaving, swaying to the music. It’s Sunday morning and no one is ready to go home.
