‘Concert By The Sea’ Week, Coltrane’s Birthday, Day Of Peace & First Day Of Fall

September 19th marked the 60th anniversary of Erroll Garner’s historic 'Concert by the Sea'. It was part of a concert series that led to the famed Monterey Jazz Festival, and it resulted in an album that not only was Garner’s most successful, but was something like the ‘Kind of Blue’ of its era - it seemed nearly every home had one. Now, for the first time, the complete concert has been released and Night Train will feature music from it – both popular selections from the original album, and previously unreleased material – throughout the entire week.
