Tadd Dameron's Big Ten - Dial "D & T" for "Dameron & Trumpets" - 1949/1953

This is a terrific contribution compiled and shared by Kent - thanks a lot!
This deserves being exposed on the main blog!

I'm a big fan of Tadd Dameron's and have his official releases (the Navarro/Dameron Blue Note 2CD set and all the OJCs), as well as three of those Boris Rose LPs. But I'm no good as far as digitizing vinyl goes, so this is very, very much appreciated!

What a treat! Great music from a great composer during a great era. Did you pick up on the Navarro/Dameron material up at my site (shameless plug here)? Thank you!

No, I still believe in buying CDs (often more CDs than I should buy...) :-)

But I know your site and found some good things there!
