Synopsis

Album Description
A rare Japanese-only session from Red Garland -- recorded in the early 80s with support from Ahmad Jamal's old trio-mates -- Jamil Nassar on bass and Frank Gant on drums! The Garland heard here is a gentler one than on his earlier recordings -- playing with a nice Jamal-like sense of spacious exploration and mellow grooving. Tunes are mostly standards, but they're handled here in a manner that makes them feel much more like personal statements of expression than familiar chestnuts -- and titles include "This Can't Be Love", "Misty", "But Not For Me", "Over The Rainbow", and "If I Were A Bell".

First Rate!
Robert J. Ament | Ballwin, MO United States | 02/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was probably Red's last recording....having come out of retirement, and it is a fine set of standards and show tunes. The accompanyment is first rate also with bassist Jamil Nasser, who had an eight year stint with Ahmad Jamal, and the fine brushwork of Frank Gant, who also has recorded numerous times with Ahmad Jamal.Red Garland had lost nothing in his pianistic approach, still displaying a very sophisticated and, on this set, intimate style.Anyone who likes good jazz piano trio, and in particular Red Garland or these very familiar musical selections, will really enjoy this one!"
