Overview

Billy Dodd and Friends

Billy Dodd, a part-time pianist who was a doctor for 51 years, in 1983 had a rare opportunity to head an all-star group full of major players. Dodd leads the sextet through a dozen Dixieland standards and sounds quite happy accompanying the main soloists. This set is of greatest interest for the playing of trombonist Trummy Young, who also takes several vocals. Nineteen years after he had left the Louis Armstrong All-Stars to retire in Hawaii and just a little more than a year before his death, Young (who was probably making his final recordings) sounds in excellent form on such features as "Margie," "Someday You'll Be Sorry," and "Tain't What You Do." Trumpeter Billy Butterfield was still near his prime, and clarinetist Johnny Mince sounds fine even if he is overly hyper in spots. With bassist Jack Lesberg and drummer Eddie Graham completing the group, Dodd's all-stars jam happily on such numbers as "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Avalon," and "Big Butter and Egg Man."
