Editorial Reviews

This CD features over 50 minutes by the fiery trumpeter, Dupree Bolton. The music consists of a rare television appearance with the Curtis Amy sextet featuring Bolton, as well as studio takes from an unissued Pacific Jazz session. Bolton next shows up in Oklahoma as part of a prison band illustrating that he had not lost any of his flash despite the long years in prison. Dupree Bolton will always remain a true Fireball.

I can't disagree too strongly with the previous reviewer who gives it 3 stars for content, but I do want to give extra credit for the fact that a very rare performance of the Curtis Amy Sextet makes up the first (and best) tracks of the release. You can find the original tv broadcast on youtube - there is a Frankly Jazz channel. Amy was a fine, fine tenor player who has only seen one of his original Pacific Jazz releases get a CD reissue (Katanga, with Dupree Bolton). He lived on the west coast but he was a Texas tenor, grits & gravy kinda player, at least in his early years, and a fine composer. Having these recordings in good sound is a great thing, and for that I highly recommend the disc. The third set by the prison band is mostly kinda blah and not all that great. So three stars overall but I'd give 5 stars for a CD reissue of a fine concert from the Frankly Jazz vaults with the under-appreciated Curtis Amy. (By the way, Amy made a nice living in the studios, and recorded the sax solo on "Touch Me" by the Doors and on Carole King's Tapestry album among many other less memorable recordings.)

Dupree Bolton was not widely known. So I was quite happy to see the release of this CD on the Uptown label. It consists of three different sessions: (a) a live radio broadcast from Los Angeles featuring four tunes recorded in 1962 with Curtis Amy's group. Some very nice guitar playing by Ray Crawford. (b) A Pacific Jazz session recorded in 1963. There were two songs by a quintet. (c) Oklahoma Prison Band which recorded four songs in 1980. There is an excellent little booklet that chronicles the career of Dupree Bolton. Unfortunately, that though all playing is satisfactory there are no hidden gems to be discovered. All the solos are fairly short. I think if there had been more stretching out the end result might well have been more memorable. But, of course, presumably the producers had to use what was there. I'm glad the album was marketed but if you listen to these solos by Bolton you will not hear the exciting fiery playing he was known to be capable of. Nothing here compares to Dupree Bolton's exuberant Clifford Brownish solo on One Down from the Harold Land album The Fox recorded in 1959. So, I'd certainly purchase The Fox album before this to hear Dupree Bolton at his best. I give this album four stars mainly because it gives recognition to Dupree Bolton. The content, however, in my view is three stars.

Dupree Bolton never got to make the contribution to the world of music that he should have. His is a sad story of drugs, prison and hard times. At least jazz lovers are able to catch a glimpse of his enormous gift through this album, Fireball, Harold Land's The Fox and Katanga with Curtis Amy. There is no end to the stories of wasted potential, but this one is especially compelling.
