Product Description

Jazz trumpeter & composer Dizzy Gillespie is immortalized in this DVD, Dizzy Gillespie: A Night in Chicago, which is a historic document of one of trumpet legend's final concert performances. This night of classic Jazz, filmed in an intimate club setting, showcases the Grammy Award winning trumpeter playing, scatting, dancing, and joking in his joyous & exuberant Gillespie manner. Filmed live in Chicago, this concert performance showcases the trumpet legend as the complete entertainer, performing unique interpretations of memorable standards. Dizzy Gillespie is a Founding Father of Bebop (along with Miles Davis & John Coltrane), and this DVD captures his unyielding talent and the spirit of one of history's greatest Jazz musicians.

Musicians Include:
Dizzy Gillespie (Trumpet & Vocals)
Sayyad Abdul Al-Kahbyyr (Sax, Flute, Clarinet)
Walter Davis Jr. (Piano)
John Lee (Electric Bass)
Nassyr Abdul Al- Kahbyyr (Drums)

Selections include:
1. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
2. Embraceable You
3. Nature Boy
4. Round Midnight
5. Fiesta Mojo
6. A Night in Tunisia
7. Dizzy's Scat


This live date recorded in Chicago in the late '80s (but not released until 1993) captures pioneering bebop trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie in a scintillating set of standards and original compositions backed by a quicksilver horn/rhythm section combo, featuring the underrated pianist Walter Davis Jr. and bassist John Lee. With his trademark puffy cheeks and upturned trumpet, Gillespie delivers speed-of-light bop licks on his Afro-Latin and calypso-tinged tunes "Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac" and "Fiesta Mojo." His romantic tones ring on George Gershwin's "Embraceable You" and on a lovely trumpet/piano duo take on Thelonious Monk's "'Round Midnight." Gillespie's famous "A Night in Tunisia" is reinterpreted in a streamlined, exotic arrangement. Along with his technical genius, Gillespie is a master showman who works the audience with his charisma, jokes, and onstage banter. This DVD shows that even in his senior years, Dizzy Gillespie is still crazy like a fox. --Eugene Holley Jr.
