Dizzie Gillespie

John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is remembered as a gentle man, innovative musician and jazz ambassador, giving people all over the world pleasure in his performances and leaving them with a good feeling about America.

In the early 40's Gillespie and Charlie Parker developed bebop, the basis of modern jazz. He was a inspiring trumpet virtuoso and mentor to younger musicians.

Stephen has arranged his version of A Night in Tunisia a jazz standard written by Gillespie in 1942. It became a signature piece for Gillespie's bebop band. It has been covered by the best jazz players such as Bud Powell, Stan Getz, Maynard Ferguson, Miles Davis, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and Sonny Rollins.
