Shadowing Dizzy is an insight to a jazz fan getting to meet a Jazz legend in a very peculiar way. You'll have to read the book to find out. For eight years David got to be in the "In crowd" in John's life and has story's of, riding in limo's, being back stage, meeting famous people, and having personal conversations with John are envious. We all wish we could hang out with a legend, and David is kind enough to share his experiences he had in this fun book.
For anyone who appreciates jazz and Dizzy Gillespie in particular, this little book is a must for your collection. It also gives the reader the distinct impression that, hey, it could have been me that had that exchange that changed everything. Therefore, there remains hope for us all to possibly engage the artist of our dreams in a whole new way.
Pick this one up, it's fun and quick and it'll make you feel good; it did me.
