  1. LP, Vinyl record album. Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and a record not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody.
  2. This was the first Bowie album to have different length songs on the vinyl release than on the cassette and CD, with almost all the songs appearing on the latter having a longer running time than on the former. LP: EMI AMLS (UK) All tracks are written by David Bowie except where noted.
  3. Dizzy Gillespie: Greatest Of Dizzy Gillespie (LP, Vinyl record album) - Great RCA comp of Dizzy's earlier bop sides for the label, many of which came out first only as sing -- Dusty Groove is Chicago's Online Record Store.
  4. The LP Dizzy in Greece was a mishmash of sessions; the personnel, except for soloists, is anyone's guess. And it was not recorded in Greece. Dizzy's section playing has clams galore, and the endings, with his sometimes forced, cracked, and out-of-tune high notes, are /5(3).
  5. Much as I love Dizzy, he did not make a lot of great albums in my opinion, which makes it even more surprising that such a good cohesive set like this should have been dissed. No matter. It's back in print. I'd already stashed two copies of the LP, so that I would never be without/5(19).
  6. Recorded July 24, at the 3rd International Jazz Festival D'Antibes/Juan-Les-Pins, this is classic s Dizzy. It's smooth and swinging without losing any of his patented power. Produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring piano and arrangements from Argentinian master Lalo Schifrin, Gillespie shines here alongside underrated reed man Leo Wright/5(19).
  7. A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross &ndash.
