  6. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    When I started collecting jazz I did concentrate the first years more on big bands so I have also some Dizzy big bands together. If you are interested a bit more I can list them FYI or select the earlier ones. On the one Newport live album he has a terrific and humourful presentation for the bariton sax in the band. Its really a highlight and typical Gillespie. Also his singing on one more track is great. You should not miss it. Capitol [Japan] ECJ-50070 - Art Pepper - " Those Kenton Days" [compilation]- rec. 1953 to 1951
