I first heard him on an album with Harold Land called The Fox and wondered why he hadn't made more records. I found out by reading the liner notes on Fireball. He went to prison.
What makes this a fascinating record is that a lot of it was recorded when he was in jail, playing with the Oklahoma Prison Band. Although this portion of the record is not the greatest jazz that I ever heard, the historical significance is truly amazing.
Dupree was a great player. This recording is a collector's prize.
