Dizzy Gillespie Goes Hollywood

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
On first glance this LP looks like a dud. Dizzy Gillespie and his quintet with saxophonist James Moody and pianist Kenny Barron perform 11 themes from then-recent movies including "Caesar and Cleopatra," "Love Theme from Lolita," and "Never on Sunday." However, because the trumpeter was near the peak of his powers and his band does play such songs as "Moon River," "Days of Wine and Roses," and "Carioca" with spirit, the results are quite worthwhile, if not essential.

    If You Don't Own Any Gillespie Recordings, This Is A Good Start

    Most of the songs are very recognizable and with improvisation especially on Walk On The Wild Side, you still recognize the Songs. Maybe cut the song total by a quarter to a half of what is on the original recording there could been some really great jams on this record. Good intro to the works of this great trumpeter.
