Robert Chudnick, born and raised in West Philly until his family moved to New York, changed his name to Red Rodney as he became a teen jazz trumpet virtuoso and went off to play with the big bands of Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. Once he heard the emerging form of jazz called bebop in New York he joined up with Charlie Parker and was his lead trumpet for a few years until drugs and legal problems landed him at Leavenworth for several years. After several starts and stops in getting clean Rodney came back to play and this 1972 recording of mostly, Dizzy, Bird and Bud Powell compositions shows that he still had his chops in later years. Selections include: Marmaduke, Woody 'N You, Little Suede Shoes, Un Poco Loco, The Scene Is Clean, Early Autumn, Confirmation, The Scene Is Clean, Congo Blues, If You Could See Me Now, Yards Pad, Crazeology and a 10-minute interview with Red
