A nice set by Diz at the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival – backed by a great group of players – released here for the first time ever! The set opens with a fiery day after, and the set takes some equally hard charging turns plus some relaxed moments, too – and includes some surprises, too. Big Black is killing it on congas for this set – and the other players include James Moody on flute and tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Christopher White on bass and Rudy Collins on drums. Other titles include "Trinidad, Goodbye", "Poor Joe", "Night In Tunisia", "Ungawa" and "Gega De Saudade (No More Blues)", plus a fun comedy sketch in the middle.  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Dizzy At Home & Abroad
Atlantic, Early 50s. Used
A really obscure album for Diz – making a rare appearance here on Atlantic Records! The CD compiles tracks that had previously appeared on 2 10" LPs for Atlantic – and one set of tracks was recorded in New York ("at home"), while the others were cut in Paris ("abroad ... CD

Candid (UK), 1956. Used
Previously-unreleased material from one of the hippest chapters of Dizzy Gillespie's career – the totally smoking big band he led in the mid 50s! The ensemble's been captured on a few key Verve sessions from the time, but these excellent live recordings really stand up strongly next to those ... CD

Dizzy Goes Hollywood
Philips/Verve, 1963. Used
Surprisingly groovy work from Dizzy Gillespie – an album of tunes from Hollywood films, but all played with that lively Gillespie bounce of the time! Tunes are mostly short, and feature arrangements by Billy Byers – with Dizzy's trumpet in the lead, and a nicely groovy sound overall ... CD

Winter In Lisbon
Milan, 1990. Used
A late performance from Dizzy Gillespie, but a great one too – and just the kind of record that shows he was always a constantly creative player! At a point when many others would have been content to just lay back and rehash the same old lines, Dizzy clocked out a masterpiece like this ... CD

Jambo Caribe
Verve, 1964. Used
Excellent reissue of a lost session by Diz that was originally recorded for Limelight, and which focuses on Diz's committment to Latin and Carribean rhythms. The set features Diz's great mid-60's combo with James Moody (on tenor and Latin flute), Kenny Barron (on piano and bass), and Chris White ... CD

Dizzy For President
Douglas (France), 1963. Used
Dizzy Gillespie caught live at Monterey – recorded with a great group during one of our favorite stretches in his career! The combo's kind of a post-Lalo Schifrin quintet, but still shares plenty of the bossa-inspired elements of his tenure with Diz – long tracks, bits of Latin rhythms ... CD

Pleyel Jazz Concert 1953
Vogue/BMG (France), 1953. Used
A very famous moment from Dizzy Gillespie – tracks from his famous concert at Salle Pleyel, in Paris, from 1953! Gillespie's in fine form throughout – working in a great mix of bop and modern elements, with a few occasional playful touches to please the crowd – but never in a way ... CD

Giants/Portrait Of Jenny
Collectables, Early 70s. Used
Portrait of Jenny is a sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label. Similar to his other LPs from the time (like Soul & Salvation) in that it's got a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. But also unique in that it's got these beautiful long ... CD
