Penthouse Serenade

Erroll Garner Trio

London, 1964

Written in 1931 by Will Jason and Val Burton, this song’s first appearance was in a 1933 Betty Boop cartoon. Almost 20 years later Nat King Cole would do his own rendition.

Pittsburgh native Erroll Garner was remarkable for his ability to teach himself piano skills – skills that would bring him into collaboration with luminaries like Ahmad Jamal and Billy Strayhorn.

Personnel:

Erroll Garner, piano
Eddie Calhoun, bass
Kelly Martin, drums
