Clark TERRY, Freddie HUBBARD, Dizzy GILLESPIE – The Alternate Blues 1980

Clark TERRY, Freddie HUBBARD, Dizzy GILLESPIE – The Alternate Blues 1980
Plus Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Joe Pass, Bobby Durham
1990 Issue.


This CD is a straight reissue of a Pablo LP. Norman Granz teamed together the very distinctive trumpeters Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard and Clark Terry with pianist Oscar Peterson, guitarist Joe Pass, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Bobby Durham for a “Trumpet Summit.” This particular release features (with one exception) unissued material from the session. There are four versions of a slow blues (only the fourth was released before), all of which have very different solos from the three trumpeters. In addition they interact on “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams” and share the spotlight on a three-song ballad medley; Hubbard’s “Here’s That Rainy Day” is hard to beat. This release is not quite essential but fans of the trumpeters will want to pick it up.”
