“Have Trumpet, Will Excite!” is a 1959 studio album by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. The Penguin Guide to Jazz rates the album three stars and states that “there’s a case for saying that this is one of the best of all Gillespie’s small-group albums: the playing has a steely refinement that makes the audacious moments stand out even further, the relatively neutral setting puts a more decisive face on the trumpet choruses, and it’s a rare chance to hear Gillespie work through what might have been a hard-bop programme of standard tunes.”
