The Herbie Haymer Quintet (With Nat King Cole) - Sunset 7561 (1945)

From wikipedia…

Herbie Haymer (1916–1949) was an American jazz reedist, known primarily as a saxophonist in big bands.

Haymer played alto saxophone from age 15 and picked up tenor at age 20. He played with the Carl Sears-Johnny Watson Band, then played with Rudy Vallee, Charlie Barnet, Red Norvo (1935–1937), Jimmy Dorsey (1937–1941), Woody Herman (1941–1942), Kay Kyser (1942–1943), Benny Goodman (1943) and Dave Hudkins (1944). In 1944 he enlisted in the Navy, and after returning in 1945 he worked as a session musician in Los Angeles, in addition to dates with Red Nichols and Goodman. In 1945 he led a quintet featuring Charlie Shavers and Nat King Cole on recording, and had three songs issued on Keynote Records in 1946. In 1949 he recorded with Frank Sinatra and was killed in an automobile accident after a session.

Dodo Marmarosa Trio (With Lucky Thompson) - Atomic 226 (1946)

From wikipedia…

Michael "Dodo" Marmarosa (December 12, 1925 – September 17, 2002) was an American bebop pianist.

 Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a child prodigy, Marmarosa was a trained classical pianist, but familiarised himself with jazz in parallel and practised with schoolmate Erroll Garner, another pianist from Pittsburgh. He received the uncomplimentary nickname "Dodo" as a child because of his large head and short body.

He began his professional career in 1941, joining the Johnny "Scat" Davis Orchestra at the age of 15, which led him to joining Gene Krupa's band shortly after. The early 1940s brought a stint in Charlie Barnet's big band, where he first met Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, the luminaries of bebop. In 1944, he joined Tommy Dorsey, playing alongside Buddy Rich. In November 1944, Marmarosa joined Artie Shaw's combo, known as the Gramercy Five, that also featured guitarist Barney Kessel and fellow Pittsburgher, trumpet player Roy Eldridge.

He recorded as a sideman in the late 1940s, notably with Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Howard McGhee. He also featured in Gene Norman's Just Jazz concerts, and in 1947 won Esquire magazine's New Star (piano) award. His recordings with Charlie Parker in 1946 in Hollywood are regarded as some the finest Jazz records ever made.

Marmarosa recorded a 78-rpm single for Savoy Records on July 21, 1950. The recording featured Marmarosa's trio, with Thomas Mandrus on bass and Joe "Jazz" Wallace on drums. The four tunes recorded for the session were reissued by Savoy on the double album, The Modern Jazz Piano Album (1980).

After 1950, his only recordings were a 1961 session for Argo Records under the supervision of Chicago producer Jack Tracy (Dodo's Back!) and a 1962 Chicago studio date featuring him in trio and, with Gene Ammons, quartet settings (available as Prestige CD Jug & Dodo). He continued to perform in Pittsburgh, albeit irregularly, and a CD containing amateur recordings of his performances has been issued by Uptown Records. His low profile has been attributed to mental illness: Marmarosa was drafted in 1954, given electric shock treatment, and discharged in poor psychological condition.

Marmarosa last performed in public at the Colony Restaurant in Pittsburgh in 1968. Despite his intermittent career, he is generally considered to have been in the top rank of jazz pianists. At the time of his death, Marmarosa resided at the VA Medical Center in Lincoln-Lemington-Belmar, Pittsburgh, occasionally playing piano and organ for residents and guests of the center.

The Three Peppers - Decca 2751 (1939)

Not much information out there on this St. Louis jazz trio.

They began their recording career in 1937 and continued until 1940. Although they still played venues, they didn't record again until 1947 and eventually broke up two years later.

Texas Johnny Brown & His Blues Rockers - Atlantic 876 (1949)

Gotta call yesterday from my "record store guy" who just came into about 300-400 78s. Made a rare mid-week jaunt and snagged 'em all. They are mainly black big band/swing and post war jazz (many labels I have never seen except online) with just a smattering of earlier stuff. They all came from a meticulous collector as each disc had a typed artist/song tab adhered to the edge of each sleeve.

When I got home, I flipped more thoroughly through just one box and found this one from 1949 that was a bit out of place as far as genres included. I grew up listening to Atlantic records, The Drifters, Clovers, Ruth Brown...the usual. I had never heard of this one. Apparently he is still active around the Houston area.

EDIT: It was just a few months after originally posting this that Texas Johnny Brown passed away at 85 in July of 2013.

Recorded on April 6, 1949.

Benny Goodman & His Orchestra - Harmony 1061 (1941/46)

Kind of an odd pairing in that these two songs were recorded five years apart yet this appears to be the only release for either. (I could be wrong)
