CD Reviews

A fine collection of early bop gems.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The personnel listed for these 13 tracks from various dates between February of 1945 and May of 1946 reads like a who's who of bop. Dizzy Gillespie's trumpet leads groups including, Charlie Parker on alto, Sonny Stitt on alto, a young Dexter Gordon on tenor, drummers Shelly Manne and Kenny Clarke, Vibraharpist Milt Jackson, and bassist Ray Brown. All of the selections are classic bop numbers performed in small combos or high energy big band settings. The sound quality is fairly good for material from this period. Overall this is a worthwhile cd for fans of Diz and classic bop."
