Synopsis by Mark Deming
Dizzy Gillespie was one of the great trail-blazing artists of jazz -- clearing the way for the sonic innovations of be-bop, Latin, and progressive jazz, and playing his fine, distinctive trumpet alongside some of the music's most enduring talents. Dizzy's Dream Band records a 1982 date at New York's Lincoln Center in which Dizzy performed with an impressive collection of fellow jazz legends and gifted young turks, including Gerry Mulligan, Max Roach, Milt Jackson, Grady Tate, Curtis Fuller, and Jon Faddis. Selections include "A Night in Tunisia," "Groovin' High," "Manteca," and "Salt Peanuts."
