To Be or Not To Bop

"The Mooche" of 1928 was created by Duke Ellington for the trumpeter Bubber Miley. In a 15-minute version, performed in Stuttgart in 1961, Dizzy Gillespie explores the concept at length. Lalo Schifrin's extended piano solo uses block chords to further heighten the dramatic intensity of this soul version. Schifrin had had doubts in 1960 whether Dizzy even wanted him in his band; he could never get hold of him by telephone and very nearly returned home to Buenos Aires. "I've had many mentors in my life, but only one master - Dizzy." He went on to compose large-scale suites for the trumpeter virtually in a single surge of creativity, including Gillespiana and The New Continent. That summer Dizzy Gillespie toured Argentina and Brazil. As Schifrin put it. "Dizzy was always hungry for new musical food: calypso today, bossa nova yesterday, tomorrow - who could know?" The trumpeter engaged the versatile saxophonist and fl autist Leo Wright from 1959 to 1961, following a sensational concert at the Monterey Festival. Wright went on to live in Europe for many years. But Dizzy Gillespie narrowly missed the bossa nova trend, because Artie Shaw had advised him to make as many recordings as he could and only to release the volumes in his old age, once his musical powers were on the wane.
