October 23, 2012

Dizzy  Dizzy Gillespie was a force in jazz.  Many jazz giants got their start in his bands.  His wonderful spirit and remarkable talent are like no one else!  Hear the music of trumpeter, band leader and composer Dizzy Gillespie tonight on the 9 O'clock Special.  Jazz awakes at 8 after the pledge drive finishes tonight when you'll hear less patter more platter.
