One of Afro-Latin music's earliest, most energetic, and certainly most brilliant ambassadors, John Birks Gillespie (1917-1993) was in fine form when Bahiana (the title presumably honors both the Brazilian state of Bahia and Dizzy's Baha'i faith) was recorded in 1975. From patented bursting-at-the seams double-time flights to steam-heated passages with a mute in his celebrated upturned horn, Dizzy clearly draws nourishment from the set's Brazilian-flavored repertoire (and especially from the Brazilian percussionist Paulinho Da Costa). Like the trumpeter's personality, Bahiana is as sunny and warm as an early morning in Brazil.

with Roger Glenn, Al Gafa, Michael Howell, Earl May, Mickey Roker, Paulinho Da Costa
