Review: Mack Avenue Records has remastered pianist Garner’s first five albums from when he started his own label. Garner was a genius jazz pianist with a unique style. This is a sampler of those CDs. Some of the discs we do not have in our collection. We received 4 of the discs and they will be in the R File for the duration of this disc’s run in A-File. Please let your listeners know about the reissue & name the disc the track you are playing is from.
