5.0 out of 5 stars Glory days, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Rca Victor Recordings 1937-1949 (Audio CD)
The two compact discs of "The Complete Rca Victor Recordings" show how flaming was Gillespie's youth. The first three recordings come from the gig in Teddy Hill's band, year 1937, when Dizzy was nineteenth and played somewhat in the style of Roy Eldridge. Also included in the albun is one track, "Hot Mallets", by an all stars band led by Lionel Hampton (Benny Carter, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webester, Charlie Christian..., wow!). And finally we have Dizzy as a leader, from 1946 to 1949, mostly with his funny, visionary and seminal big band. The album ends with the famous tracks by the Metronome All Stars in 1949 ("Overtime" and "Victory Ball"). The music in these two cds is, of course, one of the highest peaks in modern jazz. But this edition is remarkable also for the booklet, that includes a very detailed discography and liner notes by Ira Gitler, legendary critic and jazz historian.
