"If you take care of yourself, you can do it. I may slow down on other activities, but I won' slow down on my horn."
For more than 40 years, Dizzy Gillespie, one of the pioneers of modern jazz, has been swelling his neck muscles and distending his cheeks to the size of a Christmas pudding, to produce the dizzy trumpet virtuosity that has given him his nickname. Now he's over 60, but his music is as consistent and inventive as ever.
Paul Vaughan presents a "Kaleidoscope" portrait of Dizzy Gillespie.
