5.0 out of 5 stars Two giants on fire 27 July 2007
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album was recorded in November 1974 and as the cover indicates it is a duet album, so there is no bass and drums backing up the Trumpet and Piano. The fact that Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson were two of the giants of Jazz on their respective instruments of course means this is completely irrelevent. Dizzy Gillespie was one of the pioneers of bebop in the 1940's and Oscar Peterson, if not the most influential of Pianists, is one of the most prolific and popular Jazz artists ever. He is/was blessed with fantastic technique but sometimes this drowned out his many other talents as a composer and accompanist.

Well to cut a long story short this is a great album. In 1974 Gillespie was still playing as near his best ever as make no difference and Peterson was playing at his at his absolute zenith. This soon becomes apparent when you start listening to 'Caravan' (track 1). Taken at a blistering tempo, and remember without bass and drums, both players are on blistering form. Everything is happening on this track. A formal musical analysis would I am sure reveal the same sort subtleties you'd find in a full score.

As a complete contrast 'Blues for Bird' (track 5) is a blues. As compared with 'Caravan' this is a bit slower for the first 5 minutes, then it becomes a really slow blues. Theres some marvellous playing here: Dizzy double or triple tonqueing some very fast repeated notes - Oscar responds by playing doubletime stride underneath. Shortly after this exchange it then hits the slow part of the blues and then there is another 7 minutes of brilliant solos. The track finishes with a restrained and quiet ending rather than the barnstorming down home ending you might expect.

This is one of a series of albums that Oscar Peterson recorded with the 'Trumpet Kings'. The other Trumpeters are: Roy Eldridge, Clark Terry, Jon Faddis and Harry Edison. All are worth getting - start saving!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars Easily 27 Oct 2002
By Nichomachus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
An incredible little album with two masters giving fast-paced and subtle duets in some great numbers. Dizzy and Oscar, all by themselves, play mind-bogglingly. Listening very closely to their dual-spontaneity is extremely rewarding. I've heard this album over and over, and it will never wear on me. Captures intensity, playfulness, inventiveness, and smooth control all at once. Really a must-have for anyone who collects jazz, especially if you enjoy bop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent performance by two giants 2 Jun 2012
By devotee of books, wine, music, and basketball - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dizzy Gillespie is my favorite trumpeter, Oscar Peterson is one of my 4-5 favorite pianists, together they produce an album which is one of their very best. The transition from stride to blues to bebop is amazing. At times the pace gets so fast its beyond what is humanly possible. All the numbers are outstanding but for me Caravan, Close Your Eyes, and Blues for Bird stand out. Beware on some pressings of this CD the sound is not quite right, either from static or Gillespie sounds a little flat. This is an occasional problem I've noticed with Pablo over time but not this time. I initially bought this as an LP and have enjoyed hundreds of hours of pleasure listening to the duel between these two absolute giants of jazz.
5.0 out of 5 stars alone together 22 Feb 2008
By Case Quarter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
all stops are pulled out on this one. maybe the players felt they had to compensate for lack of other instruments, or maybe it's the individual styles of gillespie and peterson together. and the songs selected are great choices, 4 of them by gillespie, and there's autumn leaves and ellington's caravan. a must have for fans of gillespie and fans of peterson.
