Press reviews

"Dodo Marmarosa was one of the most brilliant pianists of the classic bebop era. If he had not had emotional problems that largely forced him off the scene after 1950, he would have become an influential force, extending the innovations of Bud Powell. This generous 30-song CD is a real gap filler for much of the music from the five sessions had not been reissued in many years. Marmarosa is heard on four unaccompanied solos (including his two-part impressionistic "Tone Paintings"); on five numbers in a trio with bassist Harry Babasin (who doubles on cello) and drummer Jackie Mills; ten selections with guitarist Barney Kessel and bassist Gene Englund; and on six tunes in a quartet with tenor saxophonist Lucky Thompson, bassist Red Callender, and drummer Jackie Mills. In addition, there are five alternate takes from the Babasin date. Thompson provided four originals and there are five standards; the other 21 numbers are the pianist's compositions. These concise performances are full of fire and creative ideas, making this CD essential for all collectors of bebop piano."
