One of the true legends of jazz, Dizzy Gillespie was one of the founding fathers of be-bop, a pioneer in Afro-Cuban jazz, a striking and unique stylist on the trumpet, and a tireless showman who never gave less than 100 percent for his fans. Dizzy Gillespie: A Night in Chicago is a live video which captures a live club date from the late '80s, with Diz joined by Sayyad Abdul Al-Kahbyyr on sax, Walter Davis Jr. on piano, John Lee on electric bass, and Nassyr Abdul Al-Kahbyyr on drums. Selections include "A Night in Tunisia," "Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac," "'Round Midnight," and "Nature Boy."
