TADD DAMERON <br> VOL. 3: Royal Roost Nights <br> 1970s (Ult-Tadd Records, Self Produced - Out of Print)

Details: Ult-Tadd TDFN XX1500 Air Check Series, blue and black label, recorded in 1948-1949, year of issue unknown, probably early 70s.

Condition: Vinyl VG++, Jacket VG+

Out of Print and Not Available as CD.

NOTE: This is a very unusual and rare release from Tadd Dameron. He produced and released these recordings himself, and the record looks fairly homemade (the liner notes on the back look like they were printed with a type writer). On the front cover it states, "A Dameron Clubs exclusive. Printed in Utah."

From the All Music Guide:
The definitive arranger/composer of the bop era, Tadd Dameron wrote such standards as "Good Bait," "Our Delight," "Hot House," "Lady Bird." and "If You Could See Me Now." Not only did he write melody lines but full arrangements and he was an influential force from the mid-'40s on even though he never financially prospered. Dameron started out in the swing era touring with the Zack Whyte and Blanche Calloway bands, he wrote for Vido Musso in New York and most importantly contributed arrangements for Harlan Leonard's Kansas City Orchestra, some of which were recorded. Soon Dameron was writing charts for such bands as Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Billy Eckstine and Dizzy Gillespie (1945-47) in addition to Sarah Vaughan. Dameron was always very modest about his own piano playing but he did gig with Babs Gonzales' Three Bips and a Bop in 1947 and led a sextet featuring Fats Navarro (and later Miles Davis) at the Royal Roost during 1948-49.

The tracks are:
1. Dizzy Atmosphere
2. Good Bait
3. Webb's Delight
4. Focus
5. Wa-Hoo
6. Good Bait 2
7. The Squirrel
8. Wah-Hoo 2

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
