While Red Garland's Rediscovered Masters 1 features a lackluster follow-up to Manteca (same artists, two months later, yielding poorer results in my opinion), Volume 2 offers some very interesting material, unfortunately in an incomplete form. The highlight for me is the last three tracks from a March 16, 1961 session featuring Oliver Nelson on sax, Richard Williams on trumpet, Peck Morrison on bass and Charlie Persip on drums. This was the only time Red and Nelson ever got together, and one of the few times Red recorded for Prestige with a quintet (the other of course being the famous sessions with Donald Byrd and 'Trane in 1957 -- see my reviews of High Pressure and Dig It). Two other tracks from this 3/16 session appear on Soul Burnin, and it has been great fun listening to all five numbers together as its own album! The first four tracks here are from a August 12, 1959 trio session with Doug Watkins on bass and Specs Wright on drums. Again to hear the full recording date, one needs to get Stretching Out (see my review), which annoyingly contains this very same account of "Satin Doll," but also two other tracks. There are seemingly dozens of Red Garland OJC CDs, so it's hard to recommend rediscovering him before you first discover him. But if like me, you have exhausted all those originally issued Prestige albums, then REDiscover away!
