Dizzy Gillespie Tribute (part 1)

Hosted by

October 21st marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Birks ("Dizzy") Gillespie, an innovator of giant proportion who, along with Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk, led a musical revolution called bebop that still reverberates.  We'll celebrate his centennial this weekend (10/21) and next (10/28) on Strictly Jazz, with the first show concentrating, but not limited to, his formative years.
