Erroll Garner Playing Misty-Authentic Version


This is Erroll Garner himself dramatically performing his famous piece. It is everything Liberace’s is not. This performance is executed in the style in which he wrote it before the words were composed at a later date. Look at me, I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree And I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud I can’t understand, I get misty, holding your hand. Walk my way, And a thousand violins begin to play Or it might be the sound of your hello That music I hear, I get misty the moment you’re near You can say that you’re leading me on But it’s just what I want you to do Don’t you realize how hopelessly I’m lost That’s why I’m following you. On my own, Would I wander through this wonderland alone Never knowing my right foot from my left, My hat from my glove, I get misty, and too much in love. Myplaylists include music by Lee Liberace, Jon England, Richard Clayderman, Roger Williams, Hoagy Carmichael, Michel Legrand, Art Tatum, Dino Kartsonakis, Errol Garner, Charlie Schaffer, Russ Conway, Ferrante & Teicher, Carl Doy, Beegie Adair, Caravelli, Floyd Cramer, Geoff Love, Horst Jankowski, Ronnie Aldrich, Stanley Black, David Foster, Claude Bolling, Edison Valencia, Marrina Waks, and one Liberace imitator who tags his stuff [Roger Williams] and [Branson] and has told me not to mention his name. There are also many pieces by little known [nobodies] who are fantastic piano soloists, admired mainly by their YouTube fans. I am looking for videos of Bill Pursell, Felix Slatkin

This is in my opinion is the best piano version of Misty on the web. Signature song of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, as well as Johnny Mathis and many others. My playlists include music by Lee Liberace, Jon England, Richard Clayderman, Roger Williams, Hoagy Carmichael, Michel Legrand,…

Liberace Misty (Erroll Garner)


A Horrible Interpretation of Erroll Garner’s Misty Played by Liberace. Why do I think it’s an awful rendition? Because of the way it’s hammered out with pretentiously, overly dramatic chords. (But that was Lee.) It has no sense of romance and it’s not “dreamy” sounding like it should be in this musician’s opinion. It doesn’t flow smoothly. It fails to lure the listener into wistful enchantment. I think Roger Williams, Beegie Adair, and Fabrizio Caligaris (all posted here) do a much better job with this piece than much loved best piano player who ever lived. Nevertheless I posted it because afterall it is Misty, and it is Liberace. Myplaylists include music by Lee Liberace, Jon England, Richard Clayderman, Roger Williams, Hoagy Carmichael, Michel Legrand, Art Tatum, Dino Kartsonakis, Errol Garner, Charlie Schaffer, Russ Conway, Ferrante & Teicher, Carl Doy, Beegie Adair, Caravelli, Floyd Cramer, Geoff Love, Horst Jankowski, Ronnie Aldrich, Stanley Black, David Foster, Claude Bolling, Edison Valencia, Marrina Waks, and one Liberace imitator who tags his stuff [Roger Williams] and [Branson] and has told me not to mention his name. There are also many pieces by little known [nobodies] who are fantastic piano soloists, admired mainly by their YouTube fans. I am looking for videos of Bill Pursell, Felix Slatkin, George Shearing, John Arpin, Norm Geller, Norman Percival, and Gordon Franks. I would be amiss if I didnt have the greats Del Wood and JoAnn Castle on my page, however
