Two-Disc Unreleased Live Red Garland Set Due

Recorded in 1977 with Philly Joe Jones and Leroy Vinnegar

Philly Joe Jones, Red Garland and Leroy Vinnegar

A two-CD/three-LP of a previously unreleased live recording from 1977, featuring pianist Red Garland, bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Philly Joe Jones, is being released Jan. 20 by Elemental Music. Titled Swingin’ on the Korner, the show was taped at San Francisco’s now-defunct Keystone Korner.

The package includes a 44-page booklet with essays by Nat Hentoff, Ira Gitler, Don Schlitten, Doug Ramsey, Benny Green and Kenny Washington, with an introduction by producers Zev Feldman and former Keystone Korner proprietor Todd Barkan, as well as photographs taken during the actual concerts by Keystone staff photographer Tom Copi.

Garland and Jones were members of Miles Davis’ quintet in 1955. Garland died in 1984.
