It seems strange that Los Angeles-based pianist Dwight Dickerson has never become too famous. On this 1992 CD, Dwight's Rights, he plays some excellent modern mainstream piano solos and takes two very likable vocals. Five of the numbers feature Dickerson with bassist Louie Spears and drummer Tootie Heath; he takes "A Ghost of a Chance" as an unaccompanied piano solo, and his two vocal numbers, "Everybody Digs the Blues" and "I Need Money," team him with the hard-swinging tenor saxophonist Red Holloway, bassist Richard Reid, and drummer Bruno Carr. Dickerson has a very appealing style and he should have caught on bigger. This set gives listeners a strong sampling of his talents.
