Coleman Hawkins with the Red Garland Trio (also referred to as Swingville) is an album by saxophonist Coleman Hawkins with pianist Red Garland’s trio recorded in 1959 and released on the Swingville label.

“One of Hawkins’s better Prestige sessions (originally on its Swingville subsidiary) finds him fronting a then-modern rhythm section for a variety of basic originals, the ballad “I Want to Be Loved” and “It’s a Blues World.” The lengthy “Bean’s Blues” is the highpoint of this generally relaxed session.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
