Dizzy and Louis

2 of the greatest trumpeters of all-time. Louis Armstrong may be the greatest. If so, then Dizzy Gillespie is the second greatest. Dizzy understood the theory of jazz and bop. Dizzy could take you to the board and show you why this note led to this note. Although Louis got into a tiff with Dizzy over the direction of jazz in the 50’s, on thing is clear although they both clowned on stage, they meant nothing but business when those horns met their lips.
