For bop fans inclined to thorough chronicles of their favorite stars, Classics' Chronological series might be the best place to start. Dizzy Gillespie gets the royal treatment this time out, with his 1946-1947 edition and 21 slices of rarefied and powerfully swinging work. And besides loads of the maestro's incendiary solos, the disc also spotlights other young bop talent like James Moody, Sonny Stitt, and Kenny Clarke. Beware, though: In between top-flight solo work and crack material like "Emanon" and "One Bass Hit," there are some razzy vocals and sundry hijinks, too. Still, the material all has the magic Gillespie touch and that's certainly not a bad thing.
