Red Garland: On the Session

Pianist Red Garland's résumé reads like a greatest hits of bebop and hard bop, his luscious block chords and elegant melodies supporting John Coltrane's frenzied solos (“Russian Lullaby”), Miles Davis' remarkably cool lyricism (“‘Round Midnight”), and Coleman Hawkins' breathy sensuousness (“I Want to Be Loved”). The way Garland fills space on tracks like “Tenor Madness” is spectacularly graceful.
