Featurng Dizzy Gillespie, Allen Honigberg, Gonzalo Rubalcaba
Jazz history was irrevocably altered when Dizzy Gillespie helped form the burgeoning "be=bop" movement in the 1940s. This film offers a glimpse of a trip to Cuba from the legendary trumpet player, where he provided entertainment for the audience at Havana's Fifth International Jazz Festival.
Cuban music provided a great inspiration for Gillespie, so it was a fitting location in which to film the star. With a full band behind him, Gillespie performs a series of songs that draw on the traditions of Cuban music, while some intimate footage captures some priceless offstage moments with the talented musician.
