Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Nine years after Benny Goodman's groundbreaking concert, bebop finally came to Carnegie Hall. Most notable on this 1997 CD which contains music that has been reissued many times, often incoherently is the meeting between altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie.

Most notable on this 1997 CD which contains music that has been reissued many times, often incoherently is the meeting between altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Joined by the underrecorded piano of John Lewis, bassist Al McKibbon and the slightly overrecorded drums of Joe Harris, Bird and Diz generate some real fireworks on five songs, and Parker's rendition of "Confirmation," and the CD's high point, is definitive and memorable. The remainder of the set ten selections including "Cool Breeze," "One Bass Hit," "Cubano-Be, Cubano-Bop" and "Things to Come" features the Gillespie big band in typically spirited form. Of particular interest are a few numbers "Relaxin' at Camarillo," which was arranged by George Russell, "Hot House," and "Toccata for Trumpet" that were never recorded in the studio by the big band. Classic bebop.
