Paris Concert.Los Angeles: GNP Crescendo, 1972 Stock Code: 144504
Signed cleanly by Diz in full in blue ball-point pen on the back cover. This is a US reissue of Gillespie's 9 February 1953 Salle Pleyel concert, originally released on Disques Vogue in 1962; there were many reissues, testimony to the sheer excitement of this gig.
Diz was travelling with Bill Graham (alto and baritone), and regular fixtures at this time in Wade Legge (piano), Lou Hackney (bass) and Al Jones (drums), the set augmented by a couple of vocal excurions from Joe Carroll and Sarah Vaughan. The band cooks up a storm, Diz is in top form, and the Paris crowd are more than enthusiastic.
12-inch vinyl LP (GNPS 9006), new plain paper sleeve (original sleeve also present), original album cover.
Hole punched top left through both panels of cover (known as a "cut-out"indicating return of album by retailer to manufacturer), a minimum of shelf wear, otherwise very good, clean and bright; disc in excellent condition.
