#DizzyGillespie

John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie (Cheraw, 21 ottobre 1917 – New York, 6 gennaio 1993) è stato un trombettista, pianista e compositore statunitense. Jazzista, fu anche cantante, percussionista e bandleader. Con Charlie Parker fu, negli anni quaranta, uno degli inventori e delle figure chiave del bebop e del jazz moderno.

John BirksDizzyGillespie (/ɡɨˈlɛspi/; October 21, 1917 – January 6, 1993) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and occasional singer.

Allmusic’s Scott Yanow wrote, “Dizzy Gillespie’s contributions to jazz were huge. One of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time (some would say the best), Gillespie was such a complex player that his contemporaries ended up copying Miles Davis and Fats Navarro instead, and it was not until Jon Faddis’s emergence in the 1970s that Dizzy’s style was successfully recreated […] Arguably Gillespie is remembered, by both critics and fans alike, as one of the greatest jazz trumpeters of all time.”

Gillespie was a trumpet virtuoso and improviser, building on the virtuoso style of Roy Eldridge but adding layers of harmonic complexity previously unknown in jazz. His beret and horn-rimmed spectacles, his scat singing, his bent horn, pouched cheeks and his light-hearted personality were essential in popularizing bebop.[citation needed]

In the 1940s Gillespie, together with Charlie Parker, became a major figure in the development of bebop and modern jazz. He taught and influenced many other musicians, including trumpeters Miles Davis, Jon Faddis, Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown, Arturo Sandoval, Lee Morgan, Chuck Mangione, and balladeer Johnny Hartman

Avec Miles Davis et Louis Armstrong, il est considéré comme l’un des trois plus importants trompettistes de l’histoire du jazz, ayant participé à la création du style Bebop et contribué à introduire les rythmes latino-américains dans le jazz.

Dizzy Gillespie se distinguait en particulier par sa trompette au pavillon incliné vers le haut, il jouait parfois avec une sourdine. Ses joues gonflées à bloc comme celles d’un crapaud, ainsi que sa joie de vivre et son humour ravageur sont pour beaucoup dans sa popularité auprès du public. En tant que musicien, il avait une technique époustouflante et une vitesse de jeu impressionnante.

Gillespie, con Charlie Parker, fue una de las figuras más relevantes en el desarrollo del bebop, y del jazz moderno. Fue durante toda su vida un incansable experimentador de música afroamericana, lo que le llevó a experimentar con el jazz afrocubano, colaborando con percusionistas como Chano Pozo, y otros géneros como el calipso, la bossa nova o a colaborar con músicos externos al mundo del jazz, como Stevie Wonder.
