Debut album by pianist Red Garland featuring tracks recorded in 1956. After his performances in the Miles Davis quintet had made people aware of his talent, Prestige signed Red Garland to his own exclusive recording contract. A Garland of Red was the first in a long line of albums by the Dallas-born Philadelphian.

With a colleague from the Davis group, bassist Paul Chambers, and Arthur Taylor on drums, he formed what was essentially a recording trio. This made them no less potent than if they had been working clubs, too. Garland's extensive repertoire yields two handfuls of standards, a blues ("Blue Red") and an "I Got Rhythm" (Charlie Parker's "Constellation"). For Garland as a Prestige leader it was only the beginning, but a very auspicious one.
