Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Crossings is an album by pianist Red Garland, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Philly Joe Jones which was recorded in late 1977 and released on the Galaxy label in the following year.

“Amazingly enough, this set (reissued on CD) was the first time that pianist Red Garland and drummer Philly Joe Jones recorded together in a trio setting, even though they had both been a part of Miles Davis’ first classic quintet. With bassist Ron Carter completing the group, they perform five standards and the bassist’s “Railoroad Crossing.” This is one of Garland’s best later dates (Philly Joe often pushes him), and the highlights include “Solar,” “Oleo” and “Love for Sale.”” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
