5.0 out of 5 stars The 3rd record from an historic session September 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In November and December of 1957, Red Garland got to lead his first, and only session, as a leader of a band as opposed to a trio (more on the trio in a second). Both "Soul Junction", and "All Mornin'Long" were masterful recordings which were released first from these same session dates with Coltrane, Donald Byrd, and the Garland trio. "High Pressure" was the last to come out, but you'd never know that it was 3rd choice material. I notice that the tracks are shuffled differently than on the copy that I have, where "Soft Winds" opens up (an old Goodman tune) and Red begins just as good as on all the other LPs. Coltrane and Byrd compliment each other so well, I think, because their styles differ - Byrd blows 'hot', but straight ahead, never complicated and always accessable. Art Taylor is the drummer's drummer, and perfect for this date. All 3 of the abovementioned CDs are top, top shelf. As to the trio, Red put out a lot of trio stuff: you can not say it is all mediocre, no way. "Red In Bluesville", "Can't See For Lookin'"...these are a few that are simply great. The knock on a few of the trio dates is that they are short in length, or they sound the same. Sorry, the good ones I could listen to every day, and Red was of the best trio players out there, groove and dynamic-wise. Check that Trio out, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars No "Pressure" -- This is One of the Best Garlands July 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Red Garland is probably best known as the piano player in Miles Davis' classic mid-50s quintet. On the heels of that group's success, Garland enjoyed a very productive relationship with Prestige Records. Unfortunately, while he put out seemingly dozens of albums, most of them are mediocre to good trio recordings. The exceptions come with "Soul Junction," "All Mornin' Long" and this album, "High Pressure." In a quintet setting, Garland is truly at home. Donald Byrd and Red's bandmate from his days with Miles, the one and only John Coltrane, join the pianist on "High Pressure." They all play decisively on the album's five standards, which couldn't always be said for both Red and 'Trane at this point in their careers. Don't feel any pressure to buy "High Pressure" -- this album is an all around excellent purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 50s era jazz January 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a really great quartet date, Trane's prowess is far from at it's peak and his solos don't quite stand out yet. But you really should have this record for the lyrical stylings of Red Gardner who is shamefully overlooked as a pianist.

Gardner's styling may be a bit conventional without as much flair as an Oscar Peterson or lyrical beauty as Bill Evans, but he gets buy.

There's some superb bass work here by Paul Chambers (?) too.
