Description

Reissue of a 1986 European studio session featuring Dizzy Gillespie as a special guest sitting in with one of Phil Woods' greatest quintets, which includes trumpeter Tom Harrell and pianist Hal Galper.

Dizzy is rightly seen as one of the most important figures in jazz - in the 1940s together with Charlie Parker, he played a key role in the development of bebop and modern jazz. "Dizzy Gillespie's contributions to jazz were huge...Arguably Gillespie is remembered, by both critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time." - Scott Yanow, AllMusic.

Personnel: Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet), Phil Woods (alto saxophone), Tom Harrell (trumpet/flugelhorn), Hal Galper (piano), Steve Gilmore (bass), Bill Goodwin (drums)

"It seems natural for someone like Woods - a disciple of Charlie Parker - to play with Gillespie, who was Parker's closest associate from the bebop years. They certainly sound at ease in one another's company." - musicweb-international
