Recorded in 1977, the two-disc Swingin' on the Korner: Live at Keystone Korner showcases pianist Red Garland performing with his trio at the legendary San Francisco venue. Joining Garland here are bassist Leroy Vinnegar and fellow Miles Davis bandmate drummer Philly Joe Jones. Included with the disc is a 44-page booklet detailing Garland's legacy and featuring interviews and essays. This is superb, swinging straight-ahead jazz. ~ Matt Collar
