Overview

Originally released as an LP on Savoy Records in 1950, this set features eight tracks of famed trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie sitting in with Johnny Richards' orchestra at a session that was recorded for the West Coast label Discovery Records (released under the title Dizzy Gillespie Plays, Johnny Richards Conducts) and four tracks cut with the so-called BeBop Boys from a session held in 1946. The Savoy LP combined the material under the title The Dizzy Gillespie Story for its 1950 LP. [This CD edition reproduces the original artwork of the 1950 release and adds two additional tracks of Gillespie with the Boyd Raeburn Orchestra.]
