It is a bit of a mystery why British trumpeter Dizzy Reece never became much better known. His three Blue Note dates of 1958-60 are of high quality, as is his New Jazz session (Asia Minor) of 1962. However, during the 16 years since, he only made one obscure European album (a 1970 set co-led by tenor saxophonist John Gilmore) and was largely forgotten. Fortunately, Bee Hive documented him in 1978, teaming Reece up with an all-star group (both Clifford Jordan and Charles Davis on tenors, pianist Albert Dailey, bassist Art Davis and drummer Roy Haynes). Reece easily keeps up with his notable sidemen, performing three hard bop originals, "Woody'n You" and a minor blues called "One for Trane." Hopefully, this highly enjoyable Bee Hive LP will someday be rediscovered and reissued on CD.
