The life and career of the great Erroll Garner is chronicled in No One Can Hear You Read.

The 2012 documentary film Erroll Garner: No One Can Hear You Read examines the life and career of the ground-breaking musician who pushed the playability of the piano to its limits, developed an international reputation, and made an indelible mark on the jazz world.

Directed by Atticus Brady, the film explores Erroll’s childhood in Pittsburgh; his meteoric rise in popularity while playing in New York, the origins of his most famous album (Concert By The Sea) and his story behind his most famous composition (Misty).

The hour-long No One Can Hear You Read utilizes an array of archival materials interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and fellow musicians, and features from such fans and followers as insights Woody Allen, Ahmad Jamal, Steve Allen, Ruth Garner Moore (Erroll’s sister), pianist and arranger Dick Hyman, Columbia Records exec George Avakian, dancer/choreographer Maurice Hines and a bunch of others. Also included are comments from Erroll’s daughter Kim Garner, who goes on the record about her father for the very first time.

  • Director’s commentary
  • Jim Doran on the origins of the song “Misty”
  • Extended interviews with Steve Allen and Dick Hyman.
