Groovin' high by Dizzy Gillespie( )

16 editions published between 1960 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 122 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
