Hi, Dick plays great on all the Red Rodney albums. 'One for Bird' is really full on as it's a live gig featuring Bird tunes. That's the one I liked transcribing. The other two I like are 'No turn on Red' and 'Red Snapper' (Dick starts 'No Turn' with a lovely alto break).
The albums with Garry Dial are worth listening to-maybe they're a bit overwritten (with strings/brass etc) but I'm kind of fond of them as I've had them for years. Dick plays gorgeously on 'Everything I Love' from the 'Tribute to Cole Porter' album.
Have you checked out 'The Lost Art' album with Mel Lewis? That's a great one for modern tunes by Dick and Jim McNeely etc (Gary Smulyan and McNeely burn on it).
Of Dick's own albums, I like 'Simone's Dance' the most, followed by the 'Standard issue' Vol 1 & 2. (Those have the heaviest modern alto playing I can think of though). 'Simone's Dance' has a great, warm feeling about it and his tunes are sweet.
Andy Fusco is a great player, I have him on some Danny D'Imperio Sextet albums. I must get more by him-good time, good lines, nice tone, imaginative-can't knock it.
