Rate this:
A pioneer of bebop and its first spin-off, Afro-Cuban jazz, Dizzy Gillespie-with his quick wit, puffed-out cheeks, and signature bent trumpet-was also a masterful showman who succeeded in making his complex music popular with his audiences. From his roots as a self-taught trombone-turned-trumpet player, to his legendary status as the cofounder of modern jazz, to his international travels as an ambassador of jazz, this program presents the dynamic music of John Birks Gillespie against the backdrop of his memorable life.
