Among the first bebop jazz trumpeters (along with Dizzy Gillespie, Fats Navarro and Idrees Sulieman), Howard McGhee was known for his fast fingers and very high notes, but is rarely credited for the influence he extended to younger trumpeters in an era when the instrument had come back into vogue among students of jazz. Despite a troubled life and career, Howard McGhee remains a huge inspiration for younger jazz musicians, students and fans alike. The collection here brings together eight of the very finest albums the great man ever released or played on, making it the ideal go-to- compilation for collectors and fans of this pioneering, albeit hugely underrated, musician.
