Talkin’ Verve

mambo jazz

Yeah, it’s Dizzy Gillespie, and yeah, it’s not exactly original to associate the waggling piano and ballsy horns of his mamboish jazz with summer— but if this doesn’t make you want to pop on some shades and go to a barbecue, you are broken. And when the party’s winding down, grass swaying warm, greeny-gray in the melting sky, switch to Willie Bobo and float a frisbee over to the host (he’s tired of cooking hot dogs). Talkin’ Verve is a limited run compilation, but worth snapping up if you’re low on Verve catalogue items.

Classic tunes to kick off summer.
Dizzy Gillespie – Bang Bang (track 4 on the Aurgasm Summer Soundtrack)
Willie Bobo – Mercy Mercy Mercy
