The biography of Dizzy Gillespie by Claude Carrière and Christian Bonnet , illustrated by Philippe Peseux and accompanied by 2 compact discs.

If Dizzy Gillespie shares with Charlie Parker the role of initiator of the bebop revolution in the forties, we can consider him as the main popularizer of the daring of this new idiom. A spectacular trumpet virtuoso , he combined his qualities as an instrumentalist with an exceptional ability to conduct, all constantly mixed with humor and fantasy whose impact largely contributed to popularizing his new ideas.

We will judge his qualities as a leader of men in CD1, which presents him at the head of his breathtaking big band , while CD2 favors the breathtaking soloist within small ensembles.
