Great funky first track

My dad had this on LP and I always remember being blown away by the first track. Anyway, what's not to like on an album with Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge and the fantastic Oscar Peterson?

Unbelievable

TopCat

An incredible recording - all three are fantastic. Peterson's playing on "Quasi-Boogaloo" is reminiscent of Tatum. "Drebirk" is just kick *** Just a delightful recording - sound and all.

They Say All Music Guide

Teaming together Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge should result in some classic music, but by 1975 Eldridge (although still a fierce competitor) was past his prime and Gillespie was starting to fade. The material performed for this LP is just not inspiring, a few overly played standards and blues. Despite some good efforts by Gillespie and Eldridge, pianist Oscar Peterson easily emerges as the most impressive soloist; better to acquire the magnificent Gillespie-Eldridge collaborations of the 1950s instead. – Scott Yanow
