Never Been In Love (vocal) – Tadd Dameron & Irving Reid

Slow and dreamy or uptempo and happy, Dameron's luscious melody and rich harmonies create an ideal environment for expression. Two Minus You audio tracks in two different keys; two ways to interpret.

Tadd Dameron

February 21, 1917 – March 8, 1965

A giant of the bebop era, Dameron had a wonderful melodic and harmonic imagination which he brought to compositions and arrangements for both small and big bands. Writing first for Harlan Leonard, Jimmy Lunceford, Count Basie and Billy Eckstine, in the late '40s Dameron started composing and arranging for Dizzy Gillespie's big band. He also recorded his own superb sextet for Blue Note Records in 1947 which featured trumpet great Fats Navarro. Read more...
