Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The underrated trumpeter, Dizzy Reece was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1931, moved to London in 1948 and then New York in 1959 where he recorded several BLUE NOTE albums. Miles Davis once described Dizzy Reece as "a great trumpeter who's got soul and originality, and above all, who's not afraid to blow with fire".
This excellent 5-CD set features 60 tracks in chronological order with various quartets, quintets and sextets mainly recorded for TEMPO, BLUE NOTE & NEW JAZZ between 1954 & 1962.
Among the many musicians appearing with Dizzy on these recordings are saxophonists Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott, Sammy Walker, Hank Mobley, Joe Farrell & Cecil Payne; pianists Harry South, Victor Feldman, Terry Shannon, Wynton Kelly & Hank Jones; bassists Lennie Bush, Lloyd Thompson, Paul Chambers & Ron Carter and drummers Tony Crombie, Phil Seamen, Art Taylor & Charlie Persip.
The title 'Complete Recordings 1954-62' is misleading as Reece's hard-to-find 1960 BLUE NOTE sessions later released as 'Comin' On!' in 1999 are not included(probably due to copyright reasons).
Despite this unfortunate omission this bargain 5-CD set contains some impressive hard bop and is a fascinating anthology of the work of an overlooked trumpeter with an informative booklet from jazz saxophonist & writer Simon Spillett.

BTW ~ Some of the tracks on CD4 from his 1959 BLUE NOTE album 'Star Bright' have been mistitled:

'The Rebound' is track 5 not 6
'I Wished On The Moon' is track 6 not 7
'A Variation On Monk' is track 7 not 5.
