Dizzy Gillespie—pioneer of bebop, jazz innovator, trumpet master and international musical personality—celebrated his 75th birthday on this release, the first in a series of special Diamond Jubilee releases recorded live at New York's Blue Note. The unprecedented Diamond Jubilee event found Dizzy sharing the stage with over forty musicians, including fellow jazz trumpeters Wynton Marsalis, Doc Cheatham, Jon Faddis, and others. Together they explored the current developments in the music that Diz and Charlie Parker forged, the African and Latin rhythms that Dizzy investigated and then brought to modern jazz, and the ongoing influence of the genius of Dizzy Gillespie.
