Tadd Dameron became an influential bebop pianist and arranger.

He wrote arrangements for jazz artists Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, and was the composer of a number of standards including "Hot House", and "Good Bait" originally written for Count Basie.

After leading his own group in New York during the late '40s, Dameron attended the 1949 Paris Jazz Festival where he performed with Miles Davis.

In 1961 he also wrote scores for the recordings of Sonny Stitt, Milt Jackson, and Blue Mitchell.
