Teaming together Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge should result in some classic music, but by 1975 Eldridge (although still a fierce competitor) was past his prime and Gillespie was starting to fade. The material performed for this LP is just not inspiring, a few overly played standards and blues. Despite some good efforts by Gillespie and Eldridge, pianist Oscar Peterson easily emerges as the most impressive soloist; better to acquire the magnificent Gillespie-Eldridge collaborations of the 1950s instead.
