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, Dizzy Gillespie: A Night in Chicago, captures his unyielding talent and the spirit of one of history’s greatest Jazz musicians.

“…A priceless souvenir of one of our bona fide legends…”  – Chuck Berg, JazzTimes
