This edition presents, for the first time ever on CD, Dizzy Gillespie’s complete performance at the 1961 Monterey Jazz Festival. While humorously introduced by Diz as “A Musical Safari”, the set is a mixture of the repertoire the quintet was playing during that period, including an excursion into the realm of bossa nova.

The quintet features the wonderful Leo Wright and Argentinean pianist Lalo Schifrin, as well as singer Joe Carroll on one track.

  • DIZZY GILLESPIE, trumpet
  • LEO WRIGHT, alto sax & flute
  • LALO SCHIFRIN, piano
