Almost from the start of the bop movement, Dameron’s works had been favored by the new generation of jazz players.
Of course “Our Delight” had also become part of the standard jazz repertoire.
This piece was a moderately fast bebop song.
Tadd Dameron and Fats Navarro recorded “Our Delight” along with Fats Navarro and Ernie Henry , Charlie Rouse , Nelson Boyd and Shadow Wilson in 1947.
In the opening of “Our Delight,” he made a distinctive arrangement like an echo of Dameron’s big-band days.
Later years Tommy Flanagan said about Dameron’s work :
”It is very easy to play because the elements of an orchestra are built in.”
