GenreJazz, bebop

Groovin' High is a 1955 compilation album of studio sessions by jazz composer and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. The Rough Guide to Jazz describes the album as "some of the key bebop small-group and big band recordings".[1]


Jazz critic Scott Yanow concedes that the music included is classic, but dismisses the compilation over-all as "so-so" because of its brevity, because of the out of date and lightweight liner notes and because the material presented does not represent the complete sessions at which the material was played.[2] The compilation features Gillespie with a number of combinations and other musicians, including his 1946 big band, Charlie Parker, a sextet with Dexter Gordon and a combo featuring Sonny Stitt.
