This is a delightful tribute to composer Tadd Dameron from Redd. Like Tadd, Freddie has a marvelous gift of melody that is very evident from the opening introduction. Rhythmically, this arrangement lets the drummer showcase his or her slickness by seting up and emphasizing the horn figures. A lot of fun! The horn background can be used behind any soloist.
Lots of interesting II-V movement including some tritone substitution II-V's, but nothing too tricky.
NYC pianist and composer Freddie Redd's first job was with drummer "Papa" Jo Jones in 1949. The 1950s found him with groups that included Art Blakey, the Art Farmer-Gigi Gryce quintet and Gene Ammons. Redd left the US to work in Europe, and then he went to San Francisco where he worked with Charles Mingus. Back in NYC,he recorded his own LP for Riverside records before writing the music for and acting in the seventeen-month run of the Off-Broadway play The Connection, which also starred his close friend Jackie McLean.
