Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This film offers rare footage of Dizzy Gillespie and the Orchestra performing live on-stage. Widely credited with the invention of the form of jazz known as bop, Gillespie's showmanship and infectious personality played a large role in the acceptance of the music. The footage here includes performance by other musicians, notably Charlie Parker. Fans of bebop will certainly find this tape of value.
