This great two disc set contains all the recordings made by one of the most exciting pianists in jazz, the so-called 'Charlie Parker of the piano', with his trio, from the beginning of his career to the last studio session in Chicago. Lonehill Jazz. 2004.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Prior to purchasing this 2CD set, my only experience with pianist Dodo Marmarosa was via the now out-of-print Jug and Dodo. So when I saw this title, I figured why not check out a few other recordings by this all but forgotten bebop player. I'm sure glad I got it, not only because now this set is also OOP, but because these Complete Recordings, spanning six sessions over fifteen plus years, are simply wonderful. The first disc finds Dodo in the mid 40s (three times) and 1950, captured in great sound, and playing with some impressive company -- the likes of Ray Brown, Barney Kessel and Harry Babasin. (Of course, he also played live dates with no less than Charlie Parker!) The sound quality is excellent, the material is mostly standards, and the songs short and sweet. But disc 2 is where things really take off. After a decade in jazz obscurity and a relocation from L.A. to Chicago, Dodo enters the studio twice in a trio setting -- first in May 1961 with bassist Richard Davis and drummer Marshall Thompson, and again a year later with Thompson, but now with Sam Jones on bass. (This latter session also appears on the aforementioned Ammons album.) These dates are special because they show us that even "unknowns" can have talent. In my opinion, Dodo belongs in the same breath as Tina Brooks, Joe Gordon, Ernie Henry, Elmo Hope, Scott LaFaro and Jimmy Woods, among others -- great players who for one reason or another never got a chance to show us their full potential. If you have a chance to find this Lone Hill Jazz import, don't be a Dodo -- buy it and savor every note of Marmarosa.
