Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige!

There's nothing "flashback" about this one – because the record's about as in-the-moment as you could be for jazz piano in the early 60s!

Red GarlandRed Garland's Piano ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own!
