One of the best live albums by the great Red Garland, At the Prelude marks his only recorded work with the trio of Jimmy Rowser on bass and Specs Wright on drums. While he would never record again with Rowser, he had taped two previous collaborations with Wright, both made around the same period the Prelude date took place. Both were made on August 12, 1959, a productive day on which Garland waxed a trio session with Wright on drums and Doug Watkins on bass, and a quartet date adding tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins to that trio (the trio selections were issued partly on Satin Doll and partly on Rediscovered Masters, while the quartet tracks appeared on Coleman Hawkins With The Red Garland Trio). After participating on many seminal modern jazz sessions in the late Fifties and early Sixties, Garland went into semi-retirement for many years, coming back in the late Seventies. He died from a heart attack in 1984, at the age of 60.
