Red Rodney - missing Okeh tracks

Here's the four Red Rodney tracks that everyone has been clamoring for these past few months. Somehow they got left off the Okeh compilation I posted, have no idea how but believe me, I am no digital genius.

There is always a silver lining. Just as i went to re record these tracks I ran into recording problems with my cd deck, quickly compounded by some turntable problems. It forced me to take care of these issues and I have a much better set up because of it and my recordings are sounding better than ever. 

And I listened to these tracks with a fresh ear,something I hadn't done in awhile.  So cool, this old school. Here ya go, all fresh and shiny!

1. Dig This Menu, Please
2. Red's Mambo
3. Honeysuckle Rose
4. Buckle My Shoe

Red Rodney - trumpet
Buddy Savitt - tenor sax
Jimmy Golden - piano
Joe Pauline - bass
Jerry Gilgore - drums
Morty Perry - vocals

recorded in NYC circa 9/52
