Program Notes

Helping to pioneer the Afro-Cuban style of the '40s, Dizzy Gillepsie's signature composition has been recorded by countless jazz artists over the years and has become a true jazz standard. Skillfully arranged here as a saxophone section feature with concert band, this sizzling arrangement alternates between Latin and swing styles like the original.

- Program Note by publisher


A Night in Tunisia is a musical composition written by Dizzy Gillespie circa 1941-2 while Gillespie was playing with the Benny Carter Band. It has become a jazz standard. It is also known as Interlude, under which title it was recorded (with lyrics) by Sarah Vaughan and Anita O'Day. Gillespie himself called the tune Interlude and says "some genius decided to call it 'Night in Tunisia'". In January 2004, The Recording Academy added the Dizzy Gillespie & his Sextet’s 1946 Victor recording to its Grammy Hall of Fame. A Night in Tunisia was one of the signature pieces of Gillespie's bebop big band, and he also played it with his small groups.
