Now here's someone famous that I actually met in person on several occasions. I first met Red Garland at a jazz club back in the 70's called the Recovery Room. He was playing with Marchel Ivery(tenor sax) and Walter Wynn ( drummer). These were all great musicians who have all passed on to that great jazz club playing for God now. I became a big fan. Red Garland was amazing tinkling the ivories. Red Garland's career started long before I walked this earth. He played with Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Roy Eldridge, Lester Young and recorded with Miles Davis on the Columbia Recordings. He led a recording in 1977 with Philly Joe Jones.
