Dizzy Gillespie

American jazz trumpet player, bandleader, singer
(1917-93)



Dizzy Gillespie was one of the greatest trumpeters that has ever lived. He contributed to the bebop movement of jazz and helped found Afro-Cuban jazz.

From the mid-1940s Dizzy Gillespie teamed up with the saxophonist Charlie Parker and they recorded together from 1945 onwards.

Some of his famous songs of the bebop period included "Hot House", "A Night in Tunisia", "Groovin' High" and "Salt Peanuts'.
