Chicken An' Dumplins – Ray Bryant

A classic Ray Bryant composition, Chicken An' Dumplins is a bouncy swing that never fails to please. Lead sheets and second parts available, as is a solo piano arrangement with an exclusive MP3 track. A Minus You track is also now available, in a different key; this recording comes from the vocal version.

Ray Bryant

December 24, 1931 – June 2, 2011

Following performances in his native Philadelphia with guitarist Tiny Grimes and as house pianist at the Blue Note Club with Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Miles Davis and others, Ray Bryant came to New York in the mid-1950s. His first jazz recording session in New York was with Toots Thielemans (August, 1955) for Columbia Records. That session led to his own trio sessions as well as sessions with vocalist Betty Carter for Epic Records in May and June ("Meet Betty Carter and Ray Bryant"). On August 5, 1955, Ray recorded with Miles Davis, and on December 2, 1955, with Sonny Rollins, both for Prestige Records. Read more...
