The transcendental importance of this album resides among other no other musical virtues, in the special fact Gillespie had the magnificent idea of joining forces with Chano Pozo in pieces such as Cuban be, Cuban Bop and Manteca.

More than a simple musical gathering, Gillespie was writing story with golden letters, because this union melted two well different styles and approaches. The tropical vision of the glad rumba and Latin cadences with the accustomed vision of the blues, sad, introspective and meditative.

This record is a must-have because it's part of the legend and a successful fusion that originated the birth of what through the years would become the Latin jazz that would inspire musicians to come like Tito Puente, Carl Tjader, Eddie Palmieri, Dave Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Dave Samuels, Michael Camilo or Gonzalo Rubalcaba just to name a few.

A thousand carats album of relevant importance.

I like this CD of Dizzy Gillespie's material. This is only the second album of Dizzy's stuff that I have purchased. It is a good collection of the important material from his career ranging from his Be Bop era to his Afro-Cuban era. I enjoy most "Night in Tunisia" and "Manteca" which are probably his most well known songs. The reason I did not give this a higher rating is because the CD came with no liner notes except the names of the songs. While it offers a collection at a cheaper price, it lacks the quality of other collections that have important liner notes about the dates of the recordings and the band members that played with Dizzy. This is unfortunate and makes this CD not the best purchase for jazz enthusiasts that want to not just hear a recording, but also learn about the musicians who made it.

I heard a song of Gizzie Gillispie in a Chicano class, and I liked, so I look for a cd that had like with the best songs to listen more themes about him, and it is amazing!!!! I even bought a second cd as a gift to my boyfriend.
