I Dizzy Gillespie At 75-The Bebop Band 1 Usher Hall. Lothian Road. 228 1 155. £9.50—£15. The great trumpeter‘s last couple of visits with big bands have not 3 lived up to expectation. but this return to

his roots in a smaller bebop outfit

promises better. Diz is no longer the fire-cater ofthe late 1940s. but makes up

for that with the musical experience ofa lifetime playing jazz. Just in case the

Grand Old Man flags a little. the band will include a little back-up in the form of Freddie Hubbard. Claudio Rodili, Wallace ; Roney, James Moody. and Slide Hampton.

as well as a stellar rhythm trio ofKenny ! Barron. Bob Cranshaw and Charlie Persip. Dizzy sounds in good enough fettle on Bebop and Beyond‘s recent Plays Dizzy Gillespie ( Enja) disc. which is released to coincide with the Silk Cut City Jazz tour.
