Dizzy Gillespie at 100

Dizzy-original

Tonight at 8pm on Connected 2 Jazz on Bush Radio 89.5FM we celebrate another centenary: that of innovative trumpeter and bandleader Dizzy Gillespie, who, with Monk, Charlie Parker and a few others, was responsible for introducing bebop into jazz.

John Birks Gillespie was born on 24 October 1917.
