Garner actually recorded 20 selections during the one session, seven of which are on the album. The distinctive pianist introduces three of his originals (including the title cut) and comes up with clever reworkings of four standards, highlighted by a well-disguised "St. James Infirmary" and a witty rendition of "A Smooth On. Few pianists showed as much consistent enthusiasm and inventiveness within a set style as Erroll Garner, and this fine LP is quite enjoyable.

Erroll Louis Garner (June 15, 1923 – January 2, 1977; some sources say b. 1921) was an American jazz pianist and composer known for his swing playing and ballads. His best-known composition, the ballad "Misty", has become a jazz standard. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6363 Hollywood Blvd.
Afternoon of an Elf" includes all twenty songs Erroll Garner recorded in one session on March 14, 1955. These twenty tracks were originally issued on several LP's, including "Solitaire," "Afternoon of an Elf," "Plays Misty," and "Erroll! in the Land of Hi-Fi. While "Solitaire" was programmed as an album of mood music "devoted entirely to the dreamy, after-hours, sentimental songs that plays so well" (to quite the notes), and "Afternoon of an Elf" was a collection of up-tempo numbers, the reissuing producers have programmed the tracks according to their own plan. which works out just fine.
