Gillespie, Dizzy Alumni All-Star Big Band
Telarc, 2002, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: BigBand
O’s Notes: The legend of Dizzy lives on in the large ensemble format that accentuated his arrangements best. Some of the veteran musicians that played with Gillespie are here for this live set recorded in Pittsburgh during 2000. Director Jon Faddis (t) keeps it bubbly and dynamic as the master would have done it himself!
