The music was great! The Luckman Jazz Orchesstra is a group of outstanding musicians. We had excellent seats, and for the price, it was beyond our expectations.

It was wonderful to sit and hear both familiar and little known compositions by the great Dizzy Gillespie. The musicians were impressive. I only wish there was a female vocalist featured with the orchestra.

Description

In the 1940s, he and close musical partner Charlie Parker were co-founders of the bebop movement, which was jazz playing characterized by fast playing and harmonic improvisation. Dizzy played higher and faster than any other trumpet player that had ever lived – and he was creative while playing higher and faster, which was unbelievable then and still is today. Dizzy’s frequent musical collaborators also included Billy Eikstine and Chano Pazo, and his playing has enormously influenced nearly every trumpet player that came after him – both by imitation and the legacy he has left in jazz education.
