“Electrifying evening” is not a typical critic’s appraisal of time spent at a museum – even if it’s the Museum of Modern Art in New York. But who could have better created electricity in such an edifice than Dizzy Gillespie? Was anyone more the architect of the modern? “Jazz music is modern art,” comments pianist Lalo Schifrin in the liner notes, who, along with Bob Cunningham, pays tribute to this concert – a singular event in the mater trumpeter’s career, highlighted by a blistering “A Night In Tunisia” solo that ranks with Gillespie’s greatest.
