RVG Legacy's 14-track Dizzy Gillespie best-of may seem unnecessary: does the world really need another Dizzy anthology? Yet there is everything to recommend the set. Boasting an excellent track selection, sharp sound, and an overview of the bop pioneer's most crucial innovations, NIGHT IN TUNISIA is as fine a choice for a crash course in bop education as any. With the rumbling, swinging title track (one of the artist's finest and most widely recognized compositions), "Anthropology," and the Latin-soaked "Cubano Bop," the set features one highlight after another. Naturally, Dizzy's trumpet beams throughout, sounding like nothing less--even all these years later--than a clarion call to new heights.
