Format: Audio CD
The recordings in this box set are from the late 50's and early 60's. Disc 1 is Big Band, Disc 2 is Small Groups, and Disc 3 is Afro-Cuban music. People looking for the bop era might be disappointed, but I loved it.

I have a LOT of jazz CDs, and for some reason it never occurred to me to log onto Amazon and rate "Dizzy's Diamonds", I think because I just assumed that scores of people would have rated it and rated it five stars.

This is such an incredible, beautiful set of 3 CDs, with 40 of the finest jazz performances in history, many of them live. It is beyond superb, and even five Amazon stars doesn't do it justice, and I'm serious about that.

It's nice to have this box set and while I had alot of these songs on other albums, the recordings are all different. They are a little bit too structured for my preference in comparing them to other Diz albums, but it's still well worth having particularly if you're as big a Diz fan as I.

Beautiful recordings! Considering the age of some of these recordings, it is difficult to grasp the decent audio quality. Really nicely recorded and preserved (or maybe enhanced) recordings of some excellent performances. I bought this mainly for the earlier recording, but found that I also enjoyed the Afro-Cuban phase of Dizzy's music as well. At the price that I bought this for (around $20 used, but in excellent condition) I am getting a huge amount of enjoyment for the money. Really, really nice recordings and highly recommended for any Jazz lover... or music lover for that matter!
