One of the Brightest of Stars
rodney h. golden | Washington, D.C. | 08/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I owned this album on vinyl 25 years ago as a younger adult, and it hasn't lost any of its luster, musically speaking. The
personnel, instrumentation, arrangements, and solo conceptions, programmatic sequence, variety, and elan, are all classically Blue Note. Being a self-proclaimed Blue Note expert, and connoisseur, (I was actually given this album by a college
buddy at Howard University, after he found it in California; WHAT A BUDDY!!), I find the rare deja vu to be etheral (as I was a child at the time). And, every time I listen, I feel as though Dizzy and Co. are playing in the most personal of ways just for me as if I was there hearing this music then, AND NOW. The reviewer at the time said enough about the music, but the experience I get is like being on an Edward R. Murrow "You Are There" program, with Ed digging the music with his characteristic style,(too bad he didn't check this cat at the time), in living-stereo-color, '59 3-carb Cadillac for props of transpo. to, from, and during this date baby. A stately pulse present throughout, there is class and modernism, drive, romance, passion, impeccably precise soul-funk, and hip sophistication, at its Blue Note best. State of the art techs. Sound always at Blue Note, thanks to Rudy??? Van Gelder that is!!! / Max Headroom eat your heart out. Wistful, tasteful nostalgia doesn't get any better than this, although this music is thoroghly modern. As fresh as tomorrow's newspaper. It is still forward-looking, even by today's dullard standards, contemporaneously speaking. The pride is there. A VERY important album! A world-class international... Thank THE gods for the reissue. Thank God for Alfred Lion documenting so many other young, gifted black musicians. I waited for sooooo... long! Not a big media-hype star a la Miles Davis, but certainly one of the brightest of stars."
Excellent Debut, New York album.

"Although Alfred Lion recorded him in London (Blues in Trinity) with Tubby Hayes and Don Byrd; he surrounded Dizzy with a Superb group of Blue Note Stalwarts, and added Rudy van Gelder as the final ingredient in this Most enjoyable New York session. Hank/Wynton and crew help to make this a tasty Dish!"
