AllMusic Review by

This CD looks quite promising, featuring the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet on five radio braodcasts from 1953. The problem is that the band's repertoire is surprisingly limited and repetitious with four versions of the silly bop vocal "Ooh-Shoo-Be-Doobie" and an excess of Joe Carroll and Gillespie clowning. In fact, there are only five instrumentals among the 20 selections, and three are "My Man." Pass this one by.
