Diz & Getz

Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Dizzie Gillespie (trumpet); Stan Getz, Hank Mobley (tenor saxophone); Oscar Peterson, Wade Legge (piano); Herb Ellis (guitar); Ray Brown, Lou Hackney (bass); Max Roach, Charlie Persip (drums).
  • Recorded in Los Angeles, California on December 9, 1953 and in New York, New York on May 25, 1954. Includes liner notes by Doug Ramsey.
  • Digitally remastered by Thomas Ruff (Polygram Studios).
  • Gillespie was at the peak of his powers throughout the 1950s and still the pacesetter among trumpeters. This double LP matches him with Stan Getz, the Oscar Peterson Trio, and drummer Max Roach for its first half. Getz, although identified with the "cool" school, thrived on competition and is both relaxed and combative on the uptempo explorations of "It Don't Mean a Thing" and "Impromptu." The remainder of this two-fer substitutes pianist John Lewis and drummer Stan Levey for Peterson and Roach and, most importantly, adds altoist Sonny Stitt to the frontline. The results are three uptempo stomps and just one medium-tempo performance. This is one of their better (and more explosive) studio jam sessions. ~ Scott Yanow
