This little-known but beautifully-played combo session from the 70s seems to have totally vanished from the face of the earth.
By Ron Wynn (AMG)

A sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label! The record is similar to his other LPs from the time in that it’s got a cool electric feel that you don’t really associate with Diz. The whole album has a sly sweet funky sound that’s part CTI/part Latin-tinged Dizzy — and the real strength is the great Mike Longo, who plays some amazing stretched out piano lines, which work perfectly with the basslines on the record as a foil for Dizzy’s sparkling trumpet solos. The album’s got 4 long cuts — including the excellent “Me N Them”, plus “Olinga” and “Diddy Wa Diddy”.
