In the year of his 70th birthday, Dizzy Gillespie toured extensively in Europe with prominent jazz artists who had played with him in various phases of his career. On February 27, 1987, he gave a concert at the Theaterhaus in Stuttgart, Germany. It included a set by his quintet with Sam Rivers, tenor saxophone; Ed Cherry, guitar; John Lee, electric bass; and Ignacio Berroa, drums. It also had a memorable interlude with pianist Hank Jones and Gillespie playing a duet on the trumpeter’s incomparable ballad “Con Alma.” Here, the quintet opens with the Gillespie composition “Tanga.”
