Dizzy Reece Soundin' Off on 180g 45RPM 2LP
Maybe not exactly the first Dizzy Reece that comes to mind when discussing jazz, this Jamaican-born, British-raised trumpeter overcame whatever burdens that nickname may have wrought to become a highly respected player in the New York scene. He enhanced that rep by recording some truly excellent albums for the Savoy, Blue Note and Prestige labels among others. His robust and passionate playing styles always seemed to inspire other musicians in his company. The contributions of the esteemed trio; pianist Walter Bishop, Jr., bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Art Taylor, unilaterally match the front man's fire and bold approach to each tune with grace here.
