Description by OLDIES.com:

For those who require an introduction to Dizzy Gillespie, he was a legendary jazz trumpeter with both large and small bands, a leading exponent of bebop, and a pioneer of Afro-Cuban jazz in the US. Two of his albums are collected together on this single disc; on "Giant," Gillespie is joined by Bobby Hacket and pianist Mary Lou Williams. "Portrait of Jenny" is all of Dizzy's historical recordings.

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Two relatively obscure, but fine, Dizzy Gillespie albums, Giant and Portrait of Jenny, were combined on this single-CD reissue by Collectables. Although the sound and the packaging could be a little better, this still is a fine way for collectors to pick up these two records on disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
