New York's pianist Erroll Garner (1921) was another master of melody, penning
Laura (september 1945),
Fantasy on Frankie and Johnny (june 1947), the pop hit Misty (july 1954)
and a Concert by the Sea (september 1955).
While still rooted in swing music and gentle to the point of sounding
superficial, Garner's flowing style represented a meeting of the jazz tradition
and the impressionistic tradition of classical music, evoking Claude Debussy
more than the jazz pioneers.
Garner died in 1977.
