Yeah, even Diz went kozmik in the 70s. On Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods, the sidelong "Oro, Incienso y Mirra" offers earthshaking Latin rhythms, big band themes loud enough to ripple yr guts, quieter balladry, serialist Fender Rhodes piano lines and plenty of Gleeson-esque synth nastiness to piss off the purists (apparently this was the first appearance of a synthesizer on a Gillespie recording.  It's a proud birthing.) Dizzy's own lines are magnificently agile, effortlessly moving with each thematic shift. [DW]
