The Red Garland Trio + Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis (also referred to as Moodsville Volume 1) is an album by pianist Red Garland featuring saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded in 1959 and released on the Moodsville label in 1960.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "In the late 1950s, Prestige started a new subsidiary (Moodsville) that was designed to provide mood music for courting couples... Due to the overly relaxed nature of much of this music and the lack of variety, this is not one of the more essential Red Garland sets, but it is still generally enjoyable.[1]
