Album Review

Recorded during pianist Red Garland's final period, this enjoyable outing (a Muse LP) has three trio numbers by Garland with bassist Chris Amberger and drummer Eddie Moore plus three selections that add altoist Leo Wright to make the group a quartet. Garland's style was unchanged from the '50s, as he shows on "Will You Still Be Mine" and "Bye Bye Blackbird." Wright's portion of the date finds him playing lyrically on two ballads (including a surprise version of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco") and swinging on "Bag's Groove." The set was recorded live at San Francisco's Keystone Korner and was clearly a happy occasion.

red garland and a trio playing live in sf, a rare find and showing him at his finest, still red.

Red Garland - stands the test of time

As a long time fan of classic jazz, I have a lot of pianist on my list of greats - Bill Evans, Fats Waller, Keith Jarrett, Amajhd Jamaal, but for me Red Garland is the best. The most style, the most soul, the fastest fingers in town…this guy IS Jazz.

On this recording, Red brings together a great band (Leo Wright, Eddie Moore) and instantly transports you to the wie hours of the morning - in a little dimly lit jazz club.

Worth the price for I Left My Heart in San Francisco alone, but the rest of the disc also sizzles.

He started out playing clarinet and alto, switching to piano when he was 18. During 1946-1955, he worked steadily in New York and Philadelphia, backing such major players as Charlie Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, and Roy Eldridge, but still remaining fairly obscure.
