AllMusic Review by

Originally released as an LP on Savoy Records in 1950, this set features eight tracks of famed trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie sitting in with Johnny Richards' orchestra at a session that was recorded for the West Coast label Discovery Records (and released under the title Dizzy Gillespie Plays, Johnny Richards Conducts) and four tracks cut with the so-called BeBop Boys from a session held in 1946. Savoy combined the tracks for its 1950 LP release titled The Dizzy Gillespie Story).
