Red Garland in a trio setting provided the definitive sound of both Prestige Records and the entire modern jazz era. The sparkling touch, buoyant beat, and soulful affirmation of the pianist’s music can be heard in one of the largest and most consistent bodies of work from the period. The ten gems here include six tracks where Garland is accompanied by his signature partners, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Arthur Taylor, and also find guest artists Ray Barretto, Kenny Burrell, and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis fitting right into the groove. With its mix of standards, jazz classics, and rhythm and blues hits, the program captures both the scope and depth of Garland’s trio magic.
