Comment:

Dizzy was a true American original, but they didn't call him the Ambassador of Jazz for nothing. He had an all-consuming passion for pushing the sound's boundaries beyond even bebop, mixing it with the riffs and rhythms of other cultures. He was renowned for his love of Afro-Cuban grooves, and he blows with the best on "Exuberante," trading licks with Havana heavyweights Chico O'Farrill and the Machito Orchestra. Of course, Dizzy was just as likely to point his horn towards a different spot on the musical map, blending bop and bossa nova on Brazilian icon Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic "Desafinado," or kicking into a Caribbean mode with the sunny, swaying island vibes of "And Then She Stopped."
