Stan Getz/Sonny Stitt/Dizzy Gillespie For Musicians Only on 180g Import LP
Original Album Plus Bonus Track
For Musicians Only indeed, this elaborate 1958 blowing session finds the famous frontline of Stan Getz (tenor saxophone), Sonny Stitt (alto saxophone) and Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet) taking the bill but further greats like John Lewis (piano), Herb Ellis (guitar), Ray Brown (bass) and Stan Levey (drums) certainly carry their weight here as well. From Gillespie's "Bebop" and Denzil Best's "Wee (Allen's Alley)" through to the standards "Dark Eyes" and "Lover Come Back to Me," the proceedings are daring, demanding and downright phenomenal. Featuring the original 4-track album plus the bonus track "It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)."
