Overview

2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the passing of Dizzy Gillespie, a master entertainer and one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. This book, from the memoirs of Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, celebrates the relationship and influence Dizzy had with Arturo and his family. It tracks the remarkable story of how the two met in Cuba during a very restrictive period and the eventual role Dizzy would play in Arturo’s flight to freedom. It also recounts the modest start and parallels that exist between the two musicians as well as their career developments. Dizzy was so talented and creative, a true original, and a statesman on an international stage, but one of his greatest achievements and contributions to music was not only the discovery but the encouragement and promotion of Arturo Sandoval.
