My View: Eric Yves Garcia Has A Great Accompanist

Eric Yves Garcia had a great pianist to accompany his singing last night at the Pelican Cafe…..Mr. Garcia himself was on the keys!  There is nothing musically more satisfying than the experience of hearing an eloquent and serious pianist creating the arrangements that envelope his vocals. The piano harmonies always integrate more effectively and accurately when the voice and the fingers combine.  It’s a great club that Mr. Garcia belongs to, Nat King Cole, Buddy Greco, Diana Krall,  Bobby Short, BIlly Stritch, Tony DeSare  and others.  An added treat for last night’s patrons was having Avery Sommers and local celebrity Rob Russell in the audience and Mr. Garcia also played effectively for them.

Music aficionado Sandy Fisher was seated ringside but not on his Legends (Radio) Ladder for Eric’s show.   Sandy’s new show on Legends Radio called Legends Ladder features up and coming new artists who are carrying the torch of the Great American Songbook.   

Eric Yves Garcia reached the top of that ladder a while ago and has performed in all the major venues in New York City, including:
