Man With a Horn

“Men Have Died for This Music. You Can’t Get More Serious Than Than.”-Dizzy Gillespie

Today, in 1917, the GREAT Jazz and Be-bop horn player, Dizzy Gillespie was born in South Carolina. I saw him as a little girl, I guess, on the Ed Sullivan show and other shows. When he puffed out his cheeks to play, I was astounded. As a young woman, I saw him at the Village Gate and Bill Cosby jumped on stage and played the bongos!  A night to remember, folks!!!!!!
