Overview

This two-LP set, Giants of Jazz, (which should be reissued on CD) features a dream band comprised of trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt on alto and tenor, trombonist Kai Winding, pianist Thelonious Monk (in a very rare stint as a sideman), bassist Al McKibbon, and drummer Art Blakey. In general, the all-stars perform up to their usual standards on such standards as "Night in Tunisia," "Woody 'N' You," "Tour de Force," "Allen's Alley," and "Blue 'N' Boogie." Monk is well-featured on "Blue Monk" and "'Round Midnight" but Stitt steals honors on "Everything Happens to Me." A historic and superlative set.
