ABOUT RED GARLAND TRIO

 

Red Garland and Miles Davis had a symbiotic relationship. Red was such an important cog in the Davis quintet as a soloist, interactive accompanist, and keeper of the repertory. Being in Miles's group gave Garland the exposure he otherwise would not have gotten.

Once Garland's talent as a pianist, with a boundless repository of material in his head, was established, Prestige's Bob Weinstock signed him to a contract as a recording leader in his own right. With Paul Chambers on bass and New York drummer Arthur Taylor, Garland formed a trio that met quite often in Rudy Van Gelder's studio.
