Erroll Garner Trio, Gliss in the Dark

From his first recordings; I don't know when this song was released, but it was recorded in 1944.

An unusual pianist, he didn't know how to read music, he "often stated the beat with his left hand like a rhythm guitar while his right played chords slightly behind the beat, creating a memorable effect" (per Scott Yanow at Allmusic). I really like his style; I can tell his playing inside of ten seconds.
