Dizzy Gillespie's many collaborations with producer Norman Granz resulted in an impressive body of work that forms the basis for Verve Jazz Masters 10, a grab bag of bop, big band, and mainstream modern jazz recordings made between the years 1950 and 1963. The impressively packed roster of participants includes Roy Eldridge, Charlie Parker, and Sonny Stitt. In a sensible and very effective maneuver, the collection opens with the famous "Manteca" performed by Gillespie's big band at the Newport Jazz Festival. This single seven-minute performance will tell you everything you need to know about Dizzy Gillespie. Every aspect of his musical persona appeared to the people during that exciting open-air Afro-Cuban jam. It is hoped that exposure to this Roman candle version of "Manteca" and the rest of the excellent music on this CD will encourage listeners to pursue the rest of Gillespie's amazing recorded legacy.
