Howard McGhee - Dusty Blue
This item is scheduled to be released on 26th August 2022.
Truly one of the great trumpeters of the bop era: Howard McGhee suffered with drug
addiction his whole career which meant his band leading recorded output was minimal.
Although the 1950s had largely been a waste for McGhee, Dusty Blue, recorded in
1960, marked a strong return to form and is credited amongst fans as one of his best
recordings. Featuring an all star band of Bennie Green, Pepper Adams, Tommy Flanagan, Roland Alexander as well as the still touring Ron Carter, this is a collective of
musicians at their very best.
Mastered from the original tape transfers by Kevin Gray, this is a sublime recording from start to finish.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
