The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band was the most innovative jazz orchestra of 1946-1949, proof that bebop was not exclusively a small-group music. All of its recordings are well worth hearing and this particular set gives listeners a well-rounded picture of the orchestra at a concert before an enthusiastic crowd. With prominence given to James Moody's tenor, Cecil Payne on baritone, and Chano Pozo on congas (he was killed a short time after this performance) in addition to the remarkable leader/trumpeter, Dizzy Gillespie & His Big Band are heard at their absolute prime. Versions of "Good Bait," "One Bass Hit," and "Manteca" are among the highlights of this recommended date. ~ Scott Yanow
Entertainment Weekly (4/1/94, p.55) - "...The audacity, the elan of Dizzy Gillespie at his peak--with his ideas amplified by a big band considered revolutionary in its day--still dazzle 46 years after these recordings were made...."
