Pianist Red Garland: "Red Garland At The Prelude"

William "Red" Garland was one of the finest and most distinctive pianists of his generation. He rose to fame with Miles Davis from 1955 through 1958 with a few short layoffs. Garland through being employed by Davis got a recording contract with Prestige Records and made a whole series of good selling trio albums that established his sound away from Davis. Garland was also a frequent sideman on many dates with John Coltrane, Jackie McLean, Phil Woods and others. Red went on his own after his tenure with Davis and worked mostly trio gigs and recorded for Prestige and later Riverside records. Tonight's Jazz Feature is an album called "Red Garland At The Prelude" which was recorded at a small high-end club in Harlem where people actually listened! Garland chose two Philadelphia musicians to accompany him: fine bassist Jimmy Rowser and an unsung great on drums, Charles "Specs" Wright. The set consists of some great standards and blues performed by one of the all time great pianists, Red Garland!
