The music on this reissue is drawn from three separate Red Garland sessions but had not been previously put out. Best are two selections (”On Green Dolphin Street” and “If You Could See Me Now”) that find the pianist, bassist Peck Morrison and drummer Charlie Persip being joined by Oliver Nelson (on alto and tenor) and trumpeter Richard Williams; the horns in particular are quite inventive during their solos. Three numbers (two standards plus “Soul Burnin’”) have Garland, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Arthur Taylor in more conventional but pleasing form, while the spirited closer (”A Little Bit of Basie”) matches the pianist with bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Specs Wright. Fine music that will be enjoyed by straight-ahead jazz fans, although (due to the availability of so many Red Garland sessions) this set is not essential.
