AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Pianist Red Garland’s very relaxed, marathon blues solo on the 16-minute “Soul Junction” is the most memorable aspect of this CD reissue. With such soloists as tenor saxophonist John Coltrane and trumpeter Donald Byrd, plus steady support provided by bassist George Joyner and drummer Art Taylor, Garland gets to stretch out on the title cut and four jazz originals, including “Birk’s Works” and “Hallelujah.” Coltrane is in excellent form, playing several stunning sheets of sound solos.

03. Birks’ Works (7:35)
04. I’ve Got it Bad (and that ain’t Good) (6:17)
