CD Review: Diz n' Bird at Carnegie Hall

1) A Night in Tunisia
2) Dizzy Atmosphere
3) Groovin' High
4) Confirmation
5) Koko
6) Cool Breeze
7) Relaxin' at Camarillo
8) One Bass Hit
9) Nearness
10) Salt Peanuts
11) Cubano-Be, Cubano-Bop
12) Hot House
13) Toccata for Trumpet
14) Oop-Pop-A-Da
15) Things to Come

Genre: Jazz

Give this live CD a listen and find out why Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker are legends. Highlights include an impossibly fast performance of "Salt Peanuts"...and you can't listen to "Oop-Pop-A-Da" without trying to scat yourself.

****1/2 out of five
