Dizzy Gillespie January 9, 1945
Lord lists the drummer as Shelly Manne.
There's confusion about the fourth track. There is a tune called "Bebop" of course, and there is an old ragtime tune by Zez Confrey named "Dizzy Fingers". However, I can only ever find Dizzy Gillespie playing the tune as titled in the track: "Bebop (Dizzy's Fingers)". It's a small difference, but "Dizzy Fingers" is a different title than "Dizzy's Fingers" it seems, especially since I can't find any instance of a song "Dizzy Fingers" with no other title, and played by Dizzy Gillespie. Plus, allmusic lists this track as written by Diz, implying that "Dizzy's" and "Dizzy" are two different compositions. Additionally, when I listed to Zez Confrey's tune on youtube next to the Bebop(Dizzy's Fingers), they do not sound like the same song. -JS
