Description from Mosaic website:
"Born and raised in Jamaica, trumpeter Dizzy Reece first made a name for himself on the London jazz scene where he, Victor Feldman and Tubby Hayes played on each other’s albums for Tempo in the mid fifties. His big, brilliant tone, personal way of phrasing and highly original modern compositions immediately attracted the attention of American artists like Miles Davis who became an early champion.
When Alfred Lion heard his work, he commissioned British producer Tony Hall to record a Reece album for Blue Note. Blues In Trinity featured two American guests (Donald Byrd and Art Taylor) to Reece’s London band with Tubby Hayes. The results were so positive that Lion invited Reece to New York where he recorded Star Bright with the first-rate Blue Note cast of Hank Mobley, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Taylor. His third album for the label Soundin’ Off was a quartet affair with Walter Bishop, Doug Watkins and Taylor that really focused on Reece’s rich, lyrical ideas and big sound.

Dizzy recorded two more sessions for Blue Note in 1960 that were not issued until 1999 when they came out together in 1999 as Comin’ On. Stanley Turrentine is featured on both. The Jazz Messengers rhythm section (Bobby Timmons, Jymie Merritt and Art Blakey) is on the first, while the trio of Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Al Harewood plus the added tenor of Musa Kaleem are on the second. What is so striking about these dates beyond the level of the playing is Reece’s compositions which are delightfully melodic and attractive but also very unusual and challenging. His Blue Note sessions are a high point in this underrated artist’s long career."
