CD Reviews

First & Favorite of Dizzy Gillespie
Fred Sienkiewicz | Belmont, MA | 08/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first CD I owned of Dizzy Gillespie, and still remains one of my all-time favorites! It'd definitely be on my 10 cds to take with me to a desert island. Roy Hargrove has some very insightful comments on the 'joy' in Dizzy's music, and reflecting on that I couldn't agree more. Diz's work is upbeat and energetic throughout, and his ballads have that essence of catharsis to them that I love. Being a Jazz Trumpeter I cnanot help but be in awe of Diz all throughout and simply mark this album as one of my all-time favorites. (To the track 'Ool-Ya-Koo': Damn! I wish I could do that!)"
Introduction to Diz
Nikica Gilic | Zagreb, Croatia | 07/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent introduction to various facets of Dizzy's work - be-bop, latin jazz, big bands, small groups, colaboration with Parker, Eldridge and others, playing, (jocular) singing...
Hargrove's accompanying notes are not very informative but his sellection is excellent.
Have cd will excite."
