Groovin' high by Dizzy Gillespie( Recording )

57 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fresh, alive. Especially Jealousie. Dizzy puts this mesmerizing latin number into a bit of a tailspin. You feel like you are in eye of this storm of a fiery Latin piece that you get caught up in the swirl of passion that is Jealousie. Only one other rendition of Jealousie has ever been recorded that can be said to be as innovative and daring. And that which employed a full orchestra of trumpeteers, cellists, violinist and latin percussions. The artists escapes my memory but I would dearly love for someone to tell me who they were. There were many recordings of Jealousie over time and this yet to be identified version stands on as high a pedestal as good ol' Dizzy's

Dear Diz : (every day I think of you) by Arturo Sandoval( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sandoval's tribute to Dizzy Gillespie. The album is a collection of classics from Gillespie's massive body of work, each framed in big-band arrangements that throw the spotlight squarely on the elements of bebop that underscore so much of the iconic trumpeter's work and set the tone for the music of his era. Although there's been a breath of Dizzy in Arturo's work, this is the first time that such a loving tribute has been made
