Star Bright (1959)


Back to
Dizzy Reece

Star Bright also included Taylor, but the rest were current and future Davis sidemen including Hank MobleyPaul Chambers, and Wynton Kelly. The rapport between Mobley and Reece is of particular interest because of the sharp contrast in their playing styles and tones. Mobley was already moving toward his soulful, bluesy approach and his tone was warm and fully juxtaposed to the fiery phrasing and bright, brittle tone exhibited by Reece on his tunes such as "The Rake" and "Groovesville."
