Howard McGhee: Dusty Blue & The Connection (CD: Solar)
The complete classic album ‘Dusty Blue’ (originally on Bethlehem) showcases trumpeter Howard McGhee as the only horn in a quartet featuring Tommy Flanagan and Ron Carter on five tracks, while on the remaining four tunes McGhee plays in a septet that includes Pepper Adams and Bennie Green.

Also included is the complete Howard McGhee-Freddie Redd Quintet album ‘The Connection’ (originally on Felsted), recorded the very same day as Dusty Blue ! It also features the splendid tenor saxophonist Tina Brooks, who due to personal problems would stop recording in early 1961 and wouldn’t be heard from again prior to his death in 1974, at the age of 42.

Dodo Marmarosa: On Dial- The Complete Sessions 1946-47 (CD: Spotlite) Dodo Marmarosa: On Dial- The Complete Sessions 1946-47 (CD: Spotlite)
The bebop era produced one giant, Charlie Parker, a handful of first-line jazzmen, and a sprinkling of potential greats who never quite lived up to an extraordinary promise. One of the latter who came very close was Dodo Marmarosa. At the peak of his career he was one of the most exciting pianists in jazz. (Spotlite Jazz)

Dodo Marmarosa: Dodo's Dance (CD: Proper)
One of the most gifted pianists of his generation, Dodo Marmarosa's career was tragically cut short in the late 1940s by mental illness. However, prior to this he recorded with some of the biggest names around, making a name for himself not only as a pianist with the swing bands of Artie Shaw & Charlie Barnet but also as one of the musicians from that era to fully embrace bebop, recording seminal cuts with Charlie Parker such as "Relaxin' At Camarillo" in 1947. This Proper Intro presents all sides to this great musician whose huge talent transcends his short career. (Proper Records)
