Howard McGhee - Dusty Blue (2022 Remaster)


Truly one of the great trumpeters of the bop era: Howard McGhee suffered with drug addiction his whole career which meant his band leading recorded output was minimal.
Although the 1950s had largely been a waste for McGhee, Dusty Blue, recorded in 1960, marked a strong return to form and is credited amongst fans as one of his best recordings. Featuring an all star band of Bennie Green, Pepper Adams, Tommy Flanagan, Roland Alexander as well as the still touring Ron Carter, this is a collective of musicians at their very best. Mastered from the original tape transfers by Kevin Gray, this is a sublime recording from start to finish.
