FRANK MOTLEY was a famous R&B and Jazz trumpeter and bandleader, who recorded prolifically throughout the 1950s.

His fame was not merely down to his volume of recorded work, but more for the power of his live performance, specifically his ability to play two trumpets simultaneously, which earned him the nickname 'Dual Trumpeter' Motley.

His Motley Crew famously featured singer/pianist Curley Bridges, singer Elsie 'Angel Face' Kenley, and drummer Thomas 'TNT' Tribble.

They recorded extensively for Washington-based DC Records from 1951, who licensed many of their recordings to labels like Gotham, Specialty, RCA, Big Town, Hollywood and Gem.

This is a great 'lost' body of work, much of which has never previously appeared on CD.

This repertoire is sought after by R&B and R&R collectors alike, notably 'Bow Wow Wow', which is viewed by specialist collectors as being among the most raucous and exciting R&R records of all time.
