Lynn René Bayley
The Art Music Lounge, March 2020

Both Gillespie and Schifrin are in top form here, playing at their very best, and the rhythm section bashes away happily behind them. Wright, too, is in full Charlie Parker mode with a blistering solo. It’s a great finish to a fun and excellent album of Dizzy Gillespie jazz in this little CD time capsule. © 2020 The Art Music Lounge Read complete review

Music for Several Instruments, February 2020

The band is Dizzy Gillespie’s great ensemble with Lalo Schifrin on piano, Leo Wright on alto sax & flute, Bob Cunningham on bass and Mel Lewis on drums.

This is absolutely marvellous music. Duke Ellington’s The Mooche is an excellent song to introduce these concerts, since it gives each of musicians a chance to shine, and together to show off their tight ensemble. © 2020 Music for Several Instruments Read complete review
