Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-06-22In celebration of Dizzy Gillespie's big band legacy, former Dizzy alums John Lee (bass) and Slide Hampton (trombone) got together to form the Dizzy Gillespie All Star Big Band. They updated the sound by bringing in new blood such as Antonio Hart (flute)and Roberta Gambarini (vocals) to perform Gillespie's compositions. Modern day trumpeter, Roy Hargrove, is also here, not only to blow his horn, (He's featured on "I Can't Get Started".) but also to blow his own pipes on vocals for the title track. There is other fine trumpeting here from Claudio Roditi as well on "Birk's Works". Rebecca Ruth
