A superb all-star session released by CTI

"One of the best all-star sessions ever produced by the legendary Creed Taylor. Actually, this album represented the ressurrection of the CTI label in 1999. Digitally recorded and filmed (in High Definition) "live" at Van Gelder's studio, features such stars as Dizzy Gillespie, Airto, Flora Purim, Anthony Jackson, Art Farmer, John Scofield, and Phil Woods, who play together in such outstanding tracks like Michel Camilo's "Caribe" and Salif Keita's "Wamba", all arranged by Benny Golson. If possible, besides purchasing the CD version, which includes Toninho Horta's haunting ballad "Waiting for Angela" as bonus track, try to get the video version. To listen to this album is a joy. But watching the video you'll feel in heaven! 10.000 stars!"
The best by a great variety of artists.

"This disk contains many highlights by a wide variety of artists. Flora Purim's vocals are consistently stunning. There is no one like her. Art Farmer, Phil Woods and Dave Berg are outstanding in each piece in which they participate. This disk offers a glimpse of many different "legends" to showcase their talents. This was one of Dizzy's last efforts."
Somewhat Deceiving Cover

"Dizzy Gillespie only plays on the first and last tunes of this CD which is not what the covers leads one to believe. There are several vocals among the Brazilian tunes that if I had known, would not have purchased it. The jazz is fairly good and there are many big names in the groups. The original album was entitled "Rhythmsticks" and a video also exists by the same name."
