INCLUDES 8 BONUS TRACKS
This collection presents the complete studio recordings made by the outstanding 1959 Dizzy Gillespie Quintet with Junior Mance and Les Spann. These recordings are also interesting in that, with the sole exception of Les Spann's flute on a few tracks, no other horn is heard here but Dizzy's trumpet. Included are the albums Have Trumpet, Will Excite and The Ebullient Mr. Gillespie in their entirety, as well as all of the other tracks by this formation originally issued on singles and compilations. Two complete rarely heard 1954 sessions by the Gillespie quintet/sextet featuring Hank Mobley and Jimmy Cleveland have been added as a bonus.
