Red Garland & Miles Davis had a symbiotic relationship. Red was such an important cog in the Davis quintet as a soloist, interactive accompanist, & keeper of the repertory. Being in Miles’ 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 his Davis section-mate, Paul Chambers, on bass, & New York drummer Arthur Taylor, Garland formed a trio that met quite often in Rudy Van Gelder’s studio. Groovy was the 3rd in Red’s trio series for Prestige & it has the usual fine mix of jazz standards, ballad standards, blues ballads, & just plain blues. It is an object lesson in finding & maintaining a groove.
