Review

Review Text This double album is subtitled "Dizzy Gillespie Plays and Raps in His Greatest Concert," an exaggeration to say the least. In reality, this set (which contains some of his humorous joking with the audience) is a fine all-around example of Gillespie at a typical concert in 1981. At the age of 63, he was no longer the powerful trumpeter he once was, but he still had something to contribute. His sextet (with vibraphonist Milt Jackson, James Moody on tenor and alto, and the fine guitarist Ed Cherry) stretches out on long versions of "A Night in Tunisia," "Con Alma," and "Olinga," along with four other pieces. ~ Scott Yanow
