Editors’ Notes Jazz pianist Red Garland's career was a magnificent stream of brilliant collaborations and intent, focused albums as a bandleader. Tracks like “C-Jam Blues” and “I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)” reflect the moody sensibility of the work he did with the Miles Davis Quintet in the mid-'50s, but his elegant synthesis of block chords and lyrical playing on “St. James Infirmary” show off his individuality as a complex musical thinker. Garland's thoughtful, texturally nuanced musicianship made his playing endlessly compelling, especially as jazz songs got longer and longer (“Soul Junction”).
