Walt Dickerson - Tell Us Only The Beautiful Things


Walt Dickerson - vibraphone
Wilbur Ware - bass
Andrew Cyrille - percussion

Walt was a true original with a unique sound and a distinctive approach to the vibraphone, taking forward the path laid out by Hamp right through to Milt Jackson and beyond.

Dickerson made quite an impact on when he first burst on to the then embryonic "free jazz" scene as evidenced by his being voted "New Star 1962" in the prestigious Down Beat critics poll. In spite of this however, wider jazz recognition never came aided no doubt by long periods of seeming inactivity. After recording four albums for PRESTIGE in the early sixties, the somewhat enigmatic Walt dropped out until 1975 when the ubiquitous Masahiko Yuh recorded this and another album in his hometown Philadelphia.
