This superlative 5-CD set contains all existing studio recordings by one of the best jazz piano trios ever, that of Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Art Taylor. Included on this release are nine complete original albums, as well as many other separate selections that were only previously issued on various compilations. The LP Moodsville #6 appears here on CD for the first time ever!

All tracks have been organized chronologically by session order. Paul Chambers and Art Taylor were members of Garland’s regular working trio during this period. Garland became famous in 1955 when he joined the Miles Davis Quintet that also featured John Coltrane, Philly Joe Jones and Paul Chambers. Davis was a big fan of boxing and was impressed that Garland had boxed earlier in his life. Together the group recorded their famous albums, Workin’, Steamin’, Cookin’ and Relaxin’ (all of which were recorded in the course of just two marathon sessions). Garland's style is prominent in these recordings, where his distinctive chord voicings, his sophisticated accompaniment and his musical references to Ahmad Jamal’s style are evident (Miles was also a great admirer of Jamal).
