Musing on Piano Music - The Lindy Hop Laboratory

Although I knew about Erroll Garner for a while, I never listened to him until today.  I have to admit, I really like him.  He's clearly a bop player, but there's an explicit connection to old piano aesthetic like in ragtime and stride.  I'm really digging "Boucin' with Me" (3rd Track): structurally it pays homage to old-school piano, but the solos are bop, without really flying all over the place.

Loooooove it.
