Dizzy Gillespie, "Dizzy Gillespie & Modern Trumpets", Original 10" LP, Dial - 212, Orange & Yellow Labels, Deep Groove Mono, released circa 1950 (Dial was among the first record companies to issue LP jazz albums); SIGNED on the front panel by the great trumpeter, "Best Wishes, Dizzy Gillespie". This is the first LP release of Dial recordings made between 1946-48, also featuring Fats Navarro, Miles Davis and Howard McGhee; issued in a plain sleeve with printed red label, usually associated with Dial's mail order cover design. The cover is very good+, with age toning to front panel spine, not affecting the signature, bump to top front corner, rubbing to label; playing surfaces have several scuffs and light surface marks, otherwise very good+; and the original autograph in ink is near fine with no loss or skipping. A scarce jazz collectible, aptly signed by a founding father of bebop on a Dial recording, the small independent label which produced the seminal bebop recordings of the mid to late 40's. J1923
