John Birks Gillespie was born on October 21, 1917 in Cheraw, South Carolina, the youngest of nine children. He emerged as a trumpet player whose role as a founding father of modern jazz made him a major figure in 20th-century American music. His signature moon cheeks and bent trumpet made him one of the world's most instantly recognizable figures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a review, just FYI. January 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The recordings in this box set are from the late 50's and early 60's. Disc 1 is Big Band, Disc 2 is Small Groups, and Disc 3 is Afro-Cuban music. People looking for the bop era might be disappointed, but I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond awesome jazz.... January 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have a LOT of jazz CDs, and for some reason it never occurred to me to log onto Amazon and rate "Dizzy's Diamonds", I think because I just assumed that scores of people would have rated it and rated it five stars.

This is such an incredible, beautiful set of 3 CDs, with 40 of the finest jazz performances in history, many of them live. It is beyond superb, and even five Amazon stars doesn't do it justice, and I'm serious about that.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like this box set, but it's a little bit structured December 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
It's nice to have this box set and while I had alot of these songs on other albums, the recordings are all different. They are a little bit too structured for my preference in comparing them to other Diz albums, but it's still well worth having particularly if you're as big a Diz fan as I.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must. April 29, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this set when it first came out & didn't appretiate it then because i'd only started listening to Jazz. Now that some year's have passed & my appretiation for the genre has grown, I would have to say this is a must have!
