John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie (/ɡɪˈlɛspi/; October 21, 1917 – January 6, 1993) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer, and singer. Gillespie was a trumpet virtuoso and improviser, building on the virtuoso style of Roy Eldridge but adding layers of harmonic and rhythmic complexity previously unheard in jazz. His combination of musicianship, showmanship, and wit made him a leading popularizer of the new music called bebop.
The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band was the most innovative jazz orchestra of 1946-1949, proof that bebop was not exclusively a small-group music. All of its recordings are well worth hearing and this particular set gives listeners a well-rounded picture of the orchestra at a concert before an enthusiastic crowd. With prominence given to James Moody's tenor, Cecil Payne on baritone, and Chano Pozo on congas (he was killed a short time after this performance) in addition to the remarkable leader/trumpeter, Dizzy Gillespie & His Big Band are heard at their absolute prime.
