Recorded at a time when Dizzy Gillespie was fronting his fabled post-war big band featuring jazz greats such as pianist John Lewis, vibraphonist Milt Jackson or bassist Ray Brown. Jivin' in Be-Bop is a concert film that catches the irrepressible trumpeter in top artistic form. In a format that was typical of the day, dancing acts and singers such as Helen Humes or Kenny "Pancho" Hagood were featured alongside the heading Gillespie orchestra. More that fifty years have passed, but watching Diz and his men enthusiastically attach Bob classics such as Salt Peanuts, Shaw Nuff or Things to Come still makes for wonderful viewing.
