New Wave! is an album by Dizzy Gillespie consisting of live and studio performances recorded in 1962 and released on the Philips label in 1963.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
It is such a pity that Dizzy Gillespie Philips’ LPs have yet to be reissued on CD, for the trumpeter (45 at the time of this recording) was at the peak of his powers in the early ’60s. On such songs as “In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town,” “Careless Love,” “One Note Samba” and the “Theme from Black Orpheus,” Gillespie and his expanded quintet (with guests Bola Sete or Elec Bacsik on guitar and Charlie Ventura taking a memorable bass sax solo on “No More Blues-Part II”) show a great deal of spirit and creativity. Leo Wright (on alto and flute) and pianist Lalo Schifrin are also in fine form throughout this gem (http://www.allmusic.com/album/new-wave%21-mw0000532109).
