  2. 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

  6. Its hard to follow the Parker recordings because they are distributed and redistributed in various order and on LP's always with different LP titles. Have this one (+ the vol. 2 & 3) with some big band tracks Discogs lists these tracks for your album but no detailed data for the band. Have to check Lords for more Info.
