Gillespie, Dizzy All-Star Big Band
MCG, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: The legacy of Dizzy continues today playing his tunes as well as others and always in the electrifying spirit he exuded. The dynamics are exceptional with bursts of brass punctuating the phrases throughout the set. It is a live session and the audience response will give you an indication of the full range if you audio system falls short. If you want a true treat, dial in “Blue ’N Boogie” featuring Roberta Gambarini and James Moody scatting and singing! It’s just a sampling of the wealth of good music on this set.
