Producer's note:
This set contains all of the recorded music from Dizzy's working bands from 1954 to 1964 during his years with Verve and Philips. Concurrently, he toured and recorded with his own big band, with Jazz At The Philharmonic and went into the studio with various all-star configurations with such guests as Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Stuff Smith and Roy Eldridge among others. The big band and all-star sessions have been well represented during the CD, but his working bands have not. We hope this set makes up for that grievous neglect.
