John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie non only ushered in the era of Be-Bop in the American jazz tradition, he left a legacy of musical excellence that embraced and fused all musical forms, particularly those with roots deep in Africa such as the music of Cuba, other Latin American countries, and the Caribbean. His goodwill and good humor infused jazz musicians and fans throughout the world with the genuine
sense of jazz’s ability to transcend national and ethnic boundaries–for this reason, Gillespie was and
is an international treasure.

Pre-Concert Artist Talk: Join Jon Faddis and PAC Director Seth Soloway for an informal conversation with
the artists. 7pm sharp, free with your ticket.
