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

This is very serious music...what a GREAT sound...impe c c a b l e ! ! !
I can listen to all the Red Garland I can find. Seriously tasteful and tasty playing.
I am sorry for the following:
Don't read this cause it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life.tomorro w w will be the best day of your life.however if you don't post this you will die in two days.now you've started reading so don't stop.this is so scary.put this on at least 5songs in 143 minutes.when done press f6 and your lovers name will come on screen in big letters. This is scary because it really works.
His playing sometimes blisses me out snd other timrs makes me very romantic..a musical genius
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.

I just can't sit still! Jazz Pianists are my FAVORITE!!!! !
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.
Very very smooth!
The first time I've ever heard Red, and just become a fan.
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.
What Jazz is all about.Thank you Red
Bud is always the best!
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.

A great pianist!
He played with finesse and grace. What a joy! And the man could swing!

Never heard of Red GARLAND , but the guy is smooth
joylady90056
Thank you! This is truly music to me ears.....no pun intended. I just love this music. It's so cool, so smooth and mellow. It also reminds me of watching my parents dance at home when I was a little girl. Good memories.
Love this sound. So classical.
Wonderful! The discovery (thank you, Pandora) of Red Garland makes my day.

Just so you all know, Garland most certainly did not play on Kind of Blue...that was Wynton Kellyl (On Freddie Freeloader) and Bill Evans on the rest.
Light and powerful at the same time...Beaut i f u l . . .
I thought I heard most of the all-time greats. Never this one. So smoothe, so mellow. I will be looking for Red Garland.
This is a new one for me. What a discovery. Marvelously cool, and so very easy listening. Thanks much for making me a fan of Red Garland. I'll definitely be looking to hear more of this man's awesome works.

I'm no musician but I know good when I hear.
What can we say about this music of this Genre? Sheer artistry man! All the players are way out there in talent. This kind of percussion work found in this piece is the kind of thing that spoils you.

Music that's tuneful - how's that for something "new"?

I have just recently discovered Red Garland. Captivating. I could listen to his music for hours. Thank you Pandora.

Sunday afternoon, at work, drawing/desi g n i n g for last minute project, he's a pleasure to listen to, inventive, creative, lively.

One cannot miss Red Garland. He captures my attention no matter what I do. His chords are so classic and diverse.
steveranzer
Ever since I first heard Soul Junction 50 years ago, I've been a fan of Red Garland. Block chords mixed with taste and sophisticati o n . The music is never dated.
