InfoLP

Dizzy Gillespie is showcased brilliantly through these sides as the pivotal figure of a small band with which he has not been identified often. When Gillespie told Benny Golson of his desire to record something with a new instrumentation, Benny suggested the octet pattern and called Gigi Gryce to share the writing chores. The results achieve their goal, presenting excellent voicing and accompaniment to a straight forward Gillespie in a refreshingly new framework for "the greatest trumpet of them all."
