The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

Here is the Erroll Garner Trio playing his signature tune, "Misty" in a TV studio in Belgium.  Notice the bass players closeness to Garner.  He was watching his left hand because Garner could playanything in all 12 keys and he never knew which key was coming up!
