Dizzy Gillespie - And His Big Band [Live] (1948)

The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band was the most innovative jazz orchestra of 1946-49, proof that bebop was not exclusively a small group music. All of its recordings are well worth acquiring and this particular CD gives one a well-rounded picture of the orchestra at a concert before an enthusiastic crowd. With prominence given James Moody’s tenor,Cecil Payne on baritone and Chano Pozo on congas (he was killed a short time after this performance) in addition to the remarkable leader/trumpeter, the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra is heard at its absolute prime. Versions of “Good Bait,” “One Bass Hit” and “Manteca” are among the highlights of this recommended CD. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide Emanon Ool-Ya-Koo Round About Midnight Stay On It Good Bait One Bass Hit I Can’t Get Started Manteca -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------ di jazzdisposition
