Product Description


Ready Take One features six of Erroll Garner’s original never before released compositions, including the infectious Wild Music and beautiful ballad, Back To You. Recorded during a prolific five year period beginning in 1967, all 14 songs found on Ready Take One are completely unreleased and have only recently been discovered after nearly 50 years on acetate. Also to be found are previously unheard takes on classics such Stella By Starlight, Sunny, Caravan, and more.

Recorded at some of the most iconic studios of the era, this new album finds Garner in the studio with his road tested quartet and longtime manager Martha Glaser, firing off take after take of some of the most memorable performances of his career. For the first time, listeners are treated to a peek behind the studio doors, with rare conversation between Garner and the group included between many of the songs. Glaser, better known for her progressive guidance of Garner’s commercial interests, is heard here in full producer mode, slating takes and joking with Garner over the control room talk-back. As Producer Geri Allen writes, "a kind of fifth member of the band, Glaser would support Erroll Garner in the moment of the creative act”. Indeed the title of the album comes directly from Glaser’s steady refrain of, Ready Take One.
