(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD was a limited edition of 5,000 that sold out quickly, so expect to pay a premium for it now. If you can get a deal, don't hesitate. The music was a special commissioned work by JJ Johnson for large orchestra. Dizzy had been impressed by the Miles Davis & Gil Evans collaborations and JJ's work with Gunther Schuller, and so he asked for something along those lines. It's not the sort of sound that one usually associates with Dizzy, which may be why Verve chose it for the limited-edition series, but then that's also why the session should be so especially interesting. If there is justice, Verve will give the music another press run someday soon."
