Gettin' Dizzy: The High Flying Dizzy Gillespie

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Timeless Dizzy Gillespie represents a nice single-disc overview of the bop stylings that the influential trumpeter/vocalist recorded during the late '40s and early '50s. Although there are better and more representative compilations out there, the Savoy Timeless series is a nice place for curious listeners to start.
