Dodo Marmarosa

Michael "Dodo" Marmarosa (December 12, 1925 – September 17, 2002) was an American bebop pianist.Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a child prodigy, Marmarosa was a trained classical pianist, but familiarised himself with jazz in parallel and practised with school mate Erroll Garner, another pianist from Pittsburgh. He received the uncomplimentary nickname, "Dodo", as a child because of his large head and short body.
