Stitt's sound is also beautifully captured.]

I've only started listening to mainstream Jazz in earnest since Christmas, and this is one of the first albums I bought.

Of course Dizzy plays great here - he was at the top of his game.

This is a classic recording. One that should be heard by all jazz fans. The ignorant notion that Stan Getz got wiped out by Dizzy is preposterous. Both musicians play their hearts out. Of course Dizzy plays great here - he was at the top of his game. But Stan TOTALLY keeps up with Diz. One wishes that the producers/engineers hadn't made Diz play with the cup mute so much. Listen to Stan's amazing facility, clean articulation, and fleet fingers on the incredibly up-tempo "Don't Mean A Thing." Stan also plays beautifully on the ballad "Talk of the Town". For top musicians like these two, it was all about furthering the music. The game of "who won the jazz boxing match" is left to half informed non-musicians who don't know how difficult it is to play on the level of these two superb gentlemen.

Excellent record, among Diz's finest outings on Verve. The song selection is classic and leaves plenty of blowing room, the best workout being the Ellington tune "It Don't Mean a Thing...", in which Diz lights a fire so hot it seems like the rest of the band is playing out of sheer terror. On this track you'll hear what may well be Getz's most frenetic solo, along with one of Oscar Peterson's best. But there are a number of ballads as well, more conducive to Getz's cool, cooing tone, to relax things a bit.
In the liner notes OP recounts how Diz came into this session wanting "a piece of Stan Getz, bad... he wanted to take advantage of someone, and i decided it wasn't going to be me." Diz again succeeds in drawing incredible performances out of his band, getting them to play beyond themselves. Top shelf stuff.
Also, if you like this one, get "Sonny Side of the Street" with Diz, Sony Rollins and Sonny Stitt. It's another case of the bandleader challenging his band, and evoking incredible performances.

Format: Audio CD
This early meeting between Diz and Getz may be more satisfying than the duets with Rollins and Stitt, the meeting with both ("Sonny Side Up"), or the three-way interaction of Diz, Getz and Stitt on "For Musicians Only." On this Diz-Getz '54 recording, the presence of Oscar Peterson is a definite plus, providing the session with a bit more firepower than the aforementioned dates. This is relatively early Diz--before the bent upswept bell--but he's in peak form, and the fidelity isn't wanting. Getz sounds relaxed and ready to play Dizzy's own game, even mimicking some of the master player's licks. (The tone that the saxophonist gets when he tries to play "hard" has always sounded "roosterish" to me. Here we get the inimitable "cool" sound of Getz carrying a man's load.)

Some listeners may recoil at a program (no doubt Granz-inspired) that includes "Girl of My Dreams" and two parts of Lecuona's "Siboney." I say good riddance to so much of the current fare that passes for "original" songwriting.

There are also some listeners who will complain that these Granz Verve sessions lack the rhythmic thrust of Van Gelder's many Blue Note dates. The difference is partly due to the music idiom and its practitioners (these are musicians more interested in the "language" of bebop than the "groove" of hard bop) but also to recording engineers. Van Gelder "enhances" the horns, boosts bass, drums, and alters the piano sound to a degree than would simply be unacceptable to an Oscar Peterson.

The Blue Notes have their place, but suffice it say that the musicians on this more "natural-sounding" Verve recording would be done a disservice by any tampering with the sound.

With Getz, Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Max Roach, Ray Brown and Herb Ellis all playing together, how could a session go wrong. It doesn't on this exceptional collection of cuts from these six masters. Mixing standards like "It don't mean a thing" with jam sessions like "Impromptu", this group sounds like they had been gigging together for years, but this was a one-time-only gathering. The interplay between Getz and Gillespie is comparable to Davis & Coltrane with the exception that both Stan and Diz are unquestioned virtuosos who never step on each other's riffs. The real treat on this album, besides the amazing clarity, is "Siboney". It provides a glimpse of the CuBop and Bossanova sounds that the two headliners would popularize in the coming years. If you like small, tight jazz ensembles, you MUST get this album

The praise from the previous reviewer is fully deserved and I find little to add to it. Master players in top form and the interplay is fantastic. By the way, on a different edition of the same recording someone gave it a deprecating 3 star review, finding "Getz overwhelmed and Dizzy sounding like he was playing in a sock". Where are his (or her) ears?

I've only started listening to mainstream Jazz in earnest since Christmas, and this is one of the first albums I bought. I was led to it by a longtime love of Bossa Nova, in which Stan Getz plays a significant part. Much has been made in other reviews about a kind of pugilistic tone to this album, but I don't hear it. Though Diz certainly dominates the album (perhaps because the trumpet is simply a louder instrument), Getz's performance is equally wonderful in a different way. While Diz's exuberance and playfulness are certainly prominent, Getz is more precise, more seasoned, more polished. Other reviewers have noted that Getz delicately mimics Diz in a few of the riffs, which makes for some light musical comedy if you're a Jazz nerd. Every track on this album shines, from the fast-paced first and fifth tracks to the mellow and rhythmic third track, "Exactly Like You." Love Diz? Love Getz? Take it from the Neophyte: buy this album.
