Dizzy Gillespie

meets Phil Woods Quintet

TJL 74513

Dizzy Gillespie and Phil Woods go back a long way. Phil worked with Dizzy's big band on tour in the mid-1950s, and it seems natural for someone like Woods - a disciple of Charlie Parker - to play with Gillespie, who was Parker's closest associate from the bebop years. They certainly sound at ease in one another's company. (source: musicweb-international)
