Dizzy Gillespie was a real cool cat who must have been born with a horn in his hands. The trumpet was his ticket on a train to better days, and he left his hard life in a small town for New York, and the hottest band around. But did Dizzy stand straight and play right? NO! He hit high notes, low notes, never-been-heard notes, acted silly, played around, puffed his cheeks out like a clown . . . and created a whole new kind of music: Bebop. This is a story about a boy who breaks all the rules and ends up head of the class, top of the heap, the -- ska-diddley dee bop! -- Prince of Jazz. Full-color illustrations. Reinforced library binding. Juvenile audience.
