Oscar Peterson & Dizzy Gillespie {Pablo}

Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)
This album was the first of five projects in which pianist Oscar Peterson dueted with a trumpeter. Now reissued on CD, the encounter finds Dizzy Gillespie (then 57) in good form for the period, interacting with Peterson on such pieces as “Caravan,” “Autumn Leaves,” “Blues for Bird” and two of Gillespie’s originals that have become standards: “Dizzy Atmosphere” and “Con Alma.” It’s a worthy acquisition for fans of Peterson and Gillespie.
