The tender blues pianist and tough tenor were paired only once—on an album called Moodsville, Vol. 1, recorded for Prestige in December Images 1959. For the life of me, I have no idea why only four tracks were captured that day and why the pair didn't record another 25 albums together.

I have one - Red Garland with Eddie "lockjaw" Davis - The Red Blues - Status Records, ST1
Side a
1. we'll Be together again
2. Stella by starlight
3. I heard you cried last night
4. softly baby

Side B
1. when you're lover has gone
2. wonder why
3. Blue room
4. The Red Blues
