Reece Crockett (1920-1973)

Biography

Reece Crockett was nicknamed “Rocket” because of his fast piano playing abilities. He played piano for Gene Lowery’s Dixie Four quartet in Memphis beginning in 1940. In 1941, the quartet relocated to Tuscola, Illinois and operated as the Stamps-Baxter Dixie Quartet. In November 1941, Crockett left to enter the US Army. After the war, Crockett played with the Stamps Dixie Quartet in Hot Springs, Arkansas; the Homeland Harmony Quartet in Atlanta; the Stamps Melody Boys in Little Rock, Arkansas; and Don Smith's Gospelaires in Fresno, California. In the early 1950s, he re-joined the the Dixie Four which had relocated to Indianapolis and played with them for around two years.

Reece Crockett passed away in 1973 and is buried in Weakley County, Tennessee.
