Dizzy Gillespie -"In Redondo" DVD

Filmed for TV in 1986, noted jazz filmmaker Gary Keys here presents a charming and well-shot 5-track, 60-minute set from trumpet legend DIzzy Gillespie. It's centerpiece is clearly Gillespie, whose good spirit and charisma lead his band thru such classics as "Be Bop", "Kush", or "Dizzy's Made Up Blues".

The VHS-sourced origins are evident, but as a document of a legend, this one's more than worthy for serious fans. (MVD Visual)
