A Garland of Red is the debut album by pianist Red Garland featuring tracks recorded in 1956 which were released on the Prestige label.



In his review for Allmusic, Scott Yanow stated "Thirty-three at the time of this, his first recording as a leader, pianist Red Garland already had his distinctive style fully formed and had been with the Miles Davis Quintet for a year... Red Garland recorded frequently during the 1956-62 period and virtually all of his trio recordings are consistently enjoyable, this one being no exception".
