"This album, heard over a late-night AM radio in 1958, at the end of a drunken evening and back in the quiet of my dorm room, made me love jazz. There was no turning back."
Great group, certainly not best record

Can't give Red Garland and John Coltrane a mere 3 stars. They're incredible musicians, together and individually. But most of their other records outshine these fine tracks. Garland's playing is typically lovely yet still interesting - flowery not in a bad way. Coltrane seems a tad uninspired - of course good but not his sharpest, even of that time. The trio w/ Coltrane is better heard on "High Pressure" and "Dig It!". Nothing beats their Miles Davis Quintet sessions of 1956, released on 4 albums, Workin', Cookin', Steamin', and Relaxin', all very highly recommended, esp. in remastered versions."
