Meets Phil Woods Quintet
Re-release of a European studio session featuring Dizzy Gillespie as a special guest sitting in with one of Phil Woods greatest quintets!
Originally released in 1993, the album was recorded in 1986 in Studio 44 in Monster, Holland. A brilliant meeting between the Phil Woods Quintet and the father of be-bop, of whom Miles Davis once said: Bird might have been the spirit of the bebop movement, but Dizzy was its head and hands.
As the greatest musical heir on alto sax to Charlie Parker, it seemed only natural for Phil Woods to record a date with Dizzy Gillespie. This European studio session features Dizzy as a special guest sitting in with one of Woods greatest quintets, with pianist Hal Galper and the brilliant trumpeter and flugelhornist Tom Harrell ... outstanding. --All Music Guide
Woods may be regarded as the star of this recording, although Dizzy comes into his own on Round Midnight, where his tender, eloquent muted trumpet follows solos from Phil s alto sax and Tom s flugelhorn. --Musicweb-International
