This edition presents the complete original LP Diz & Getz (Norgran MGN-1050/Verve MGV-8141), on which Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz share the frontline backed by a rhythm section led by Oscar Peterson and with Max Roach on drums. Getz and Gillespie had previously recorded two songs together on January 10, 1950, during a crowded session purported to showcase the Metronome poll winners. The songs, Double Date and No Figs, were both arranged by Pete Rugolo and also included Kai Winding on trombone, Buddy DeFranco on clarinet, Lee Konitz on alto sax, Serge Chaloff on baritone sax, Lennie Tristano on piano, Billy Bauer on guitar, Eddie Safranski on bass, and Max Roach on drums. Solo space, thus, was scarce. Their next collaboration would be the 1953 date featured here, Diz & Getz, which was yet another of Norman Granz's various attempts to bring together jazz stars of different styles, an idea he also implemented on his live tours of Jazz at the Philharmonic.
