Walt Dickerson Records
Walter Roland Dickerson died of a heart attack on May 15, 2008. He was 80 years
These are all the recordings by Walt Dickerson I have heard. Many of Dickerson's
records, including all of those on the New Jazz and SteepleChase labels, have been
reissued on CD. Some of the SteepleChase CDs include material not issued on the
original LPs. If you're interested, you can read some reviews
of early Dickerson LPs. Scans of the covers are here.
Dickerson apparently also participated in recording sessions at Sweet Silence Studios
in Copenhagen on December 20, 1978 and August 8, 1979. In both cases the engineer
was Freddie Enok Hansson. Beyond this I don't know the details, e.g. what tunes
were performed or who else was involved. Also, I know of a few private recordings
in addition to those listed below (e.g. January 12, 1965 in Hilversum; October 10,
1978 at Jazzhus Montmartre, possibly January 26, 1982 in Salzburg). If you have
any information about these sessions, or about other Walt Dickerson recordings not
listed here, please send email to email@example.com.
