DIZZY GILLESPIE
        Pleyel Jazz Concert 1948

                   Recording Date:
                        February 28, 1948

Review by by Scott Yanow
A superior live concert by the 1948 Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, this LP is highlighted by a lengthy version of "'Round Midnight," "Two Bass Hit," "The Afro Cuban Suite"  and "Things to Come." Every recording by this shortlived but memorable orchestra (the most innovative big band of 1946-49) is worth acquiring.
