One Night in Washington

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Dizzy Gillespie was recruited as a special guest to perform on March 13, 1955, in concert with the Orchestra a Washington, D.C., big band, a date that was recorded by Bill Potts and not initially released until 1983 by Elektra Musician. Although there was only a brief rehearsal of Gillespie with the band prior to their performance of the trumpeter's "The Afro Suite" which includes "Manteca" plus a trio of pieces written in collaboration with Chico O'Farrill, they provide excellent support for this extended work, which features the composer extensively.

Dizzy Gillespie was recruited as a special guest to perform on March 13, 1955, in concert with the Orchestra a Washington, D.C., big band, a date that was recorded by Bill Potts and not initially released until 1983 by Elektra Musician. Although there was only a brief rehearsal of Gillespie with the band prior to their performance of the trumpeter's "The Afro Suite" which includes "Manteca" plus a trio of pieces written in collaboration with Chico O'Farrill, they provide excellent support for this extended work, which features the composer extensively. Two pieces from the vast repertoire of Count Basie, "Hobnail Boogie" and "Wild Bill's Boogie," are enjoyable, though pianist Larry Eanet suffers from an inadequate microphone setup. Ed Dimond takes over the keyboard for an explosive Latin-flavored romp through "Caravan," though Gillespie obviously steals the show. The rather reserved small group rendition of "Tin Tin Deo" is curious but still of interest. The closer is bassist Tom McKay's swinging riff tune "Up 'N' Downs," which sounds like it could have easily been a part of Basie's songbook. One oddity about the concert is that Charlie Parker had died during the previous night, but this was not known to the musicians as his passing had not yet been announced.
