Groovin' High [Indigo]

Groovin' High [Indigo]

by Dizzy Gillespie



This collection of 24 tracks is a mix of Gillespie's big band and small group efforts in the mid-'40s. There are some prime examples of seminal bebop, both from a playing standpoint and as compositions that defined the genre. Gillespie's sidemen, like Sonny Stitt, Charlie Parker and Dexter Gordon became legends in their own right, but Dizzy gave them a huge boost. Fans of this style of jazz likely already have all of this classic material, but as a stocking stuffer or birthday present for a fledgling young jazz fan, this would work well.
