Red Garland

Red Garland mixed together the usual influences of his generation (Nat Cole, Bud Powell, and Ahmad Jamal) into his own distinctive approach; Garland's block chords themselves became influential on the players of the 1960s. 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. That changed when he became a member of the classic Miles Davis Quintet (1955-1958), heading a rhythm section that also included Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. After leaving Miles, Garland had his own popular trio and recorded very frequently for Prestige, Jazzland, and Moodsville during 1956-1962 (the majority of which are available in the Original Jazz Classics series). The pianist eventually returned to Texas and was in semi-retirement, but came back gradually in the 1970s, recording for MPS (1971) and Galaxy (1977-1979) before retiring again. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Second time this afternoon that Pandora decided I needed to hear something from the It's a Blue World album. Red, with the always amazing Paul Chambers on bass, and the always tasteful Art Taylor on drums. Pure listening pleasure.

This guy was so sick w/ Miles

He has a technique of playing chords with his left hand that argue beautifully with the chords he's playing with his right hand. I listen carefully and can't duplicate this sour yet somehow soothing anigma.

Always have been a huge fan of the piano jazz players, Oscar Peterson, Errol Garner, Bill Evans etc. But since listening to Pandora I've discovered how marvelously smooooooth and swinging Red was. I've become a fan and in my book he's second only to Oscar.

I have listened to Red Garland for the last forty years and he has swung at all times. I have just about all of his recordings. My collection is quite extensive. Stan Rankin

Love reading the comments and seeing the joy that people are feeling discovering this great master of jazz piano thanks to Pandora. I have been a fan of his for over 30 years since I started listening to jazz in College and few pianists have his effortless swing, light touch, unique block chord sound and pure jazz feel. Immortal music. Spread the word!

Sid Mark and Joel Dorn the Jazz DJ's in Philly in the 60s would play Garland and I would just stop in my tracks. I was a teenager at the time, but boy did I love jazz, especially piano players.

Red is always instantly recognizable and always a delight.

Miles debt to Red can be heard by how he matured subsequently . Sophisticate d swinging propulsive.
