    I recently discovered his quintet with Coltrane and Donald Byrd - extremely underrated music that ranks with Miles and Trane's Prestige releases. They were together for only a short time, but the session that produced [url=http://www.last.fm/music/Red+Garland/High+Pressure]High Pressure[/url], [url=http://www.last.fm/music/Red+Garland/Soul+Junction]Soul Junction[/url] and [url=http://www.last.fm/music/Red+Garland/All+Mornin%27+Long]All Mornin' Long[/url] is wonderfully inspired. All three albums are overlooked classics.
