5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gillespie, 6 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Piano Jazz (Audio CD)
Recorded in 1985 this is another excellent Piano Jazz show with Marian McPartland interviewing Dizzy Gillespie over two Pianos and of course some Trumpet. And this is the recordings only fault; there isn't enough of Dizzy playing Trumpet, hence it would only get 4.5 stars from me if that was possible. Whether this was a health issue, or there was some other reason I don't know, but when he does play Trumpet, such as on "In a Mellow Tone" the result is fantastic.

It goes without saying that Dizzy is a witty and interesting guest, talking about Religion, Duke Ellington, Aretha Franklin and his love Latin/Cuban music all with equal enthusiasm.

Sadly neither Dizzy or Marian are with us now. I've been listening to the Piano Jazz shows again of late and have really begun to appreciate a. what a great musician Marian McPartland was and b. what a treasure trove for Jazz fans this series is.
